SALES OF Socialist Worker are soaring. This reflects the growing movement against the war and the thirst for arguments opposing the military campaign. Coverage of protests across the world for peace interests a wide layer of people.
It has inspired new readers of Socialist Worker to phone us, and get involved in peace vigils and protests. Opposition to the war against Afghanistan is much greater than in previous wars. Over 60 copies of Socialist Worker were sold at the 450-strong Birmingham anti-war meeting last week.
On top of this 97 copies were sold in Birmingham city centre, despite pouring rain. In Camden in north London 75 copies of Socialist Worker were sold, and 140 in Manchester. One London Underground worker sold 27 copies of the new Socialist Worker pamphlet, No To Bush's War. Build the anti-war movement in your area.
Everyone can help to build the coalition against the war. Ask people around your street, workplace, college, community group or network to sign stop the war petitions and buy Socialist Worker. Contact local workplaces, trade unions, voluntary groups, campaigns and refugee communities to invite them to get involved. Together we can create a vibrant anti-war movement that can begin to challenge Bush and Blair.
