Socialist Worker

£150,000 appeal: support the paper that's on your side

Issue No. 2067

From the smallest local disputes to the biggest international campaigns, Socialist Worker stands at the heart of the struggle for a better world – and stands proudly on your side.

In recent months we have thrown our weight behind postal workers fighting attacks on their jobs, pay and conditions. We’ve helped to mobilise for mass demonstrations to demand an end to war and occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And we’ve played a vital role defending civil rights, fighting privatisation, opposing racism and building Respect as a left wing alternative to New Labour.

Socialist Worker is also one of the few publications that stands up against the steady rightwards drift of the mainstream media. We carve out a rare space where people can debate the realities behind headline issues such as crime and immigration.

But Socialist Worker doesn’t just comment from the sidelines. We actively set out to connect together the struggles breaking out across the world – and help build a united network against war and neoliberalism.

All of this demands a great deal in terms of money and resources – and we rely on readers like you to fund what we do. This year the Socialist Worker Appeal aims to raise £150,000 to allow us to carry on with our work. If you like what we’re doing, then please help out.


‘At a time when the parliamentary process seems to be frozen, it is all the more important that people should be able to read a clear alternative political analysis in order to help us plan for the future.’

Tony Benn


‘I began reading Socialist Worker during the postal dispute, when it was really important for us to find out what was going on around the country.

Now I’m a dedicated reader, because it gives me news that’s relevant while explaining why events are happening.’

Di Allan, CWU postal union rep


‘Socialist Worker’s coverage of our strike action was unrivalled. It provided a unique account of courage and struggle direct from the picket line, giving respect and dignity to the workers involved.’

Paul Brandon, chair, Unite 1/232 Branch, Holloway Bus Garage
