It’s looking like it’ll be a challenge for us to meet our £15,000 target by May Day. Donations have slowed recently — in the last two weeks we’ve raised just £210.
Asking our members and supporters – predominantly working-class people without much spare cash – for extra donations is always tough, particularly in the current climate.
But, as distant as it may seem, its only by organisations and newspapers like ours growing that “the current climate” can be meaningfully changed. That spare fiver donated to a class-struggle socialist organisation contributes to a fight for a world where none of us will have to scrabble around for the bus fare or the weekly food shop, but where human needs are met through democratically-planned social provision.
The Alliance for Workers’ Liberty, and our newspaper Solidarity, aims to educate working-class activists in revolutionary socialist ideas so we can transform our movement so that it can build such a world. Help us by donating to our appeal.
