In the last couple of months, the AWL along with many other activities, has played a crucial role in helping to spark and then supporting the Vestas workers’ struggle. That activity — travelling to the Isle of Wight, producing bulletins, leaflets, a paper to help spread the word — all costs a lot of money. The activity — and the cost! — will continue in the coming weeks and months.
That is the sort of thing we do as an organisation. Such activities are among the reasons why you should join the AWL. But whether you're a member or not, why not help support us in our work around Vestas by making a donation, or taking out a regular standing order?
If you cannot make it to the Vestas picket line yourself, consider making a donation equivalent to your train fare!
A year ago the Alliance for Workers’ Liberty set itself an £18,000 fundraising target. This month, as our fund drive comes to an end, we had in £15,808 and expect to reach our target once we receive money raised by working for the Workers’ Beer Company at the summer festivals. Thank you to everyone who has contributed. But that was just to cover what we’ve already done. The struggle continues...
What you can do:
1. Download a standing order from our website and send to our office: AWL, PO Box 823, London SE15 4NA.
2. Or send a cheque, made payable to "AWL", to the same address.
