Workers’ Liberty HQ has rarely known as much excitement as it did on Tuesday 30 April, when our new duplicating machine was delivered.
Veteran members said it felt nearly as eventful as the day in 1973 when the office of our predecessor organisation, Workers’ Fight, was raided by Special Branch on suspicion of connections to Irish republican groups.
Our purchase of the new, top-of-the-range machine was only made possible because of a series of extremely generous donations from Solidarity readers. We can now print and duplicate the materials integral to our day-to-day work — workplace bulletins, leaflets, newsletters, and more — at unprecedented speeds.
But the need to fundraise specifically for the new machine did stall our overall fundraising drive somewhat. We’re still short of the £15,000 target we set ourselves. We’re extending the appeal until 21 June, when our Ideas for Freedom event begins.
