Fighting fund – Every bit counts!
During the last few weeks as things start to step up after the summer holidays, we have received quite a few small donations in addition to the, always welcome, larger ones. Most of these have been in the form of journal sale extras. Simply buying the journal at the solidarity price of £2 raises an extra pound for the fighting fund. This may not seem like much in the overall scheme of things but these one pound’s soon add up. So let’s remember that every bit counts.
Given the chaos in the money markets at present, the need for a Marxist explanation of events has never been more important. The editorials of the journals of big business have had to acknowledge that maybe Marx and Engel’s were right after all about capitalism and crisis. But, of course, they have nothing to say about the solutions posed by the Marxists. That is our job – but we need your financial support. No multi-billion bail outs from the Bank of England will be coming our way anytime soon. We reply entirely on the support of ordinary people. So please consider sending something in, however small, to help us keep the work going.
Donations can be made online by going to www.wellred.marxist.com . You can also go into any branch of Abbey and pay over the counter to us via account K2018479SOC in the name of SASC. Donations can also be made by post (again make cheques payable to SASC) by sending them to us at PO Box 50525, Poplar, London, E14 6WG. So why not make that investment in socialism and send us what you can without delay – be it £1 or £100. Regular donations can also be made by standing order – contact us for a form.
