This time last year Workers’ Liberty was looking forward to the New Year, to moving into new offices, upping our pace and making Solidarity a weekly. In the past year Solidarity has been much more of an activist and organising tool for our ideas because of that.
But for Solidarity to continue as a weekly, we need more money. If you think our ideas and the amplification Solidarity gives to those ideas in the working-class movement, are important then you should support us financially.
Solidarity is not a generically socialist publication, arguing for lowest-common-denominator left politics. Our ideas about independent working-class politics and consistent democracy are sadly not common currency in the labour movement.
This paper says things which, if we did not say them, would go unsaid. Such ideas are likely to matter more in the next year, as the economic and social crisis deepens.
It matters too that Solidarity does not just parrot a party line. Unlike most left papers, it’s a space for discussion, debate and dissent.
Please help us carry on fighting for our ideas and approach to socialist politics.
We’re in the process of revamping our website to make it more accessible and to make the sharing and discussion of ideas easier. That also takes money.
In the New Year we will be launching a fund drive. Please donate now. A one-off Xmas gift of just a few pounds will help A regular monthly standing order, even if that too is just a few pounds, is even better.
