Donate so we can raise our message against racism and capitalism

  (Click to enlarge)

We've printed tens of thousands of leaflets explaining our socialist response to the killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police. We have been giving them out - alongside selling the Socialist newspaper - since the protests began, along with thousands of placards, which have appeared on the BBC news.

Socialist Party members have received an excellent response on the protests.

We have often been the only socialist voice on these massive protests - and young workers understand that we cannot produce our ideas without resources, without organisation, which cost money. London Socialist Party organiser Helen Pattison reported from the 3 June demo: "Hundreds of pounds donated. Lots of 10 notes. 40 pages of sign-up sheets filled in."

If you have not done so, please consider donating online to help fund an alternative to capitalism and the racism inherent in it - at socialistparty.org.uk/donate.

We can't mention all the support we've received, but Socialist Party member Chris Newby says: "250 paid into my iZettle to donate and buy the Socialist" - another reminder of how important card readers are for Socialist Party members on these protests.

Donate to carry on Mick and Ken's legacy - the fight for socialism

This week we pay tribute to the life of Socialist Party national treasurer Ken Douglas. And several weeks ago we announced the sad and untimely death of Socialist Party member Mick Cotter.

Socialist Party members have donated in Mick and Ken's memory, to help carry on the struggle. Four members - from Chesterfield, Bristol, Kent and Mick's home of Hackney - have donated 180.

A member in Coventry has donated 50 in memory of Ken. An east London member donated 500 with the message: "Dedicated to the late, lamented socialist fighters Ken Douglas and Mick Cotter."

Coronavirus appeal

31,608.95 raised so far for our coronavirus appeal, out of a 50,000 target.

The Socialist Party is finding a tremendous echo our demands, which place the blame for the outrageous number of deaths from this virus squarely on the government and the capitalist system.

A donation of 50 from Wales through to our website came with the message: "It would be a crime not to give at this present time." From Buckinghamshire someone donating 50 said "With respect to you all."

Finance appeal

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 government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
