We are almost half way to reaching our £6,000 target on the Xmas fighting fund appeal. This, of course, means we still have some way to go if we are to hit the target by January 31st. Already we have had donations both big and small from a number of our readers and sellers – thanks to you all. But many have yet to donate. So the potential is certainly there to meet the £6,000 figure if everybody chips in. Even small donations can have an effect when they are joined together – just like the class struggle in fact. For example, if 50 comrades donated £20 each then we would have £1000 towards the final amount. So please consider what you could donate.
There has never been a more important time for the voice of socialism to be heard but we need your help. This money will be used to develop the resources of Socialist Appeal during the coming months. Only the ideas of Marxism can both explain the reasons for the current crisis of capitalism and provide a programme which will provide a way forward for the labour movement.
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, £20 or £200. It all counts.
