Although it may not seem like it from the constant rain and snow hitting the UK at present, Spring is almost with us – and with that comes the new Fighting Fund drive. This Spring will almost certainly see a general election taking place. People will be asking questions about what is the best way forward to save jobs, defend the NHS, safeguard public services, improve education and so on. Judging by the latest opinion polls, more and more people are not very happy with what the Tories have to say on this. But equally there is concern by many people about the poor record of New Labour and what they have to offer should they win the election. There is a great need for answers and a way forward that will meet the aspirations of working class people.
This is the task of Socialist Appeal. Through our paper, our website, our pamphlets and leaflets, our meetings and so on, we aim to provide an explanation to the crisis of capitalism – based on the ideas and methods of Marxism:
- How is it that Capital faces crisis after crisis on the back of huge over production when people are lacking the basic essentials to live?
- Why is there so much poverty when a few seem to have incredible wealth?
- Why is it that we have to pay for a crisis not of our making?
- How can we ensure that our voices are heard rather than being hidden by the shouting of the rich and powerful?
- What is the way forward for the organised working class – and what can I do to help?
Well you can do many things. You can become a Socialist Appeal supporter and help us in our work. Just drop a line to us at PO Box 50525, Poplar, London, E14 6WG and we will be in touch. Or you can help us financially. We have a modest target of £4,000 to raise over the next few months. A single donation of just £20 would pay for a leaflet run. A larger amount would help us fund the required upgrades to our computers and software to help improve our paper and prepare for the tasks ahead. We have NO big business backers and are reliant on the support of ordinary people to make ends meet and develop our resources. This means you!
Help make Marxist ideas the proprty of the working class. Help invest in a socialist future.
Donations can be made by Cheque/PO (made payable to SASC) which should be sent to us at PO Box 50525, Poplar, London, E14 6WG. Or why not donate by credit card via the Wellred book site?
