Your donations help us campaign on the vital issues facing working people. On 8 August, NHS workers were protesting all around the country, infuriated that many are not receiving decent pay increases this year.

They welcomed our backing for their 15% pay rise demand. Joe Fathallah from Cardiff East Socialist Party sent us in £32: "From the nurses' pay protest. People were giving me fivers and tenners for the Socialist."

£80 came in the last week for our coronavirus appeal, including £40 from the Black Country. If you haven't donated yet, now is the time. Go to socialistparty.org.uk/donate and put 'coronavirus appeal' in the comments.

Jon Dale from Mansfield got £9 from a thankful regular reader who he was unable to visit with the Socialist during lockdown.

We appeal to all our readers to get a subscription to the Socialist. An e-subscription is now available - see box.

Thanks to Joao who gave £5: "For a better and fairer world". And to Matt from south west London, who gave £40 with the message: "Afraid I can't afford too much at the moment".

Large or small, all are welcome. In fact, the over £800 we raised in Fighting Fund last week was all from similar small donations.

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.
