The Socialist Party joined thousands of others at the Battle of Cable Street 80th anniversary commemorative march and rally on 9 October in east London, selling over 50 copies of the Socialist paper. The march celebrated the victory over fascism in 1936 when an alliance of workers, Jews, dockers and socialists stopped the Blackshirts marching into the East End.

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
