We need to raise £2,750 a week to hit our new target by 1 October. With government credibility crumbling, a socialist voice is needed.

"Keep fighting comrades! I need a genuine socialist alternative", wrote Anthony from Swindon with a donation of £2.50. A Leeds watch party of the National Shop Stewards Network rally (see page 5) before the Trades Union Congress raised £45.

Thanks goes to Siobháin in Smethwick for her donation of £175 to our coronavirus appeal. As Covid cases rocket up, this is a vital appeal - we ask all our supporters to give generously.

We received £130 from five supporters in Staines. Another £10 came from Max with the message "Solidarity!"

But where possible we are out on the streets, keeping to social-distancing rules. Carlisle members sent us £108, £53 was raised on their iZettle card payment machine. These inexpensive, one-touch card readers are a vital part of every fundraising campaign - even more so now, as payments can safely be made at a distance.

Can we raise £5,500 in the last two weeks before 1 October? Every donation counts, large or small. Let's make it another record.

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.
