'As we move into a new political order, where all mainstream parties have become the same, it is important for all working class people to have a choice that has a clear agenda for socialist politics.'
Bill O'Dowd, chair of Stratford 1 RMT union branch
OUR supporters have already raised £34,302 in our appeal to raise £150,000. We are organising a workplace collection day on Wednesday 1 October. Socialist Worker supporters in Greenwich council have already collected a whopping £498. We also received £40 from Sheffield University workers and £15 from Clay Cross hospital.
We urge all of our readers to follow their lead. Groups of Socialist Worker supporters are organising fundraising events in many areas where anti-capitalists can come together, have fun, talk politics and raise money to fund the paper. There are hundreds of brilliant films around.
In Chesterfield a season of 'Fightback Films' has been organised starting with Battle of Chile and also including Bowling for Colombine and Land and Freedom. Supporters in Tottenham are organising film showings as part of Black History month.
In Hounslow there is a club night with up and coming hip-hop bands The Unpeople and GM Baby.
