OVER 900 copies of Socialist Worker were sold over the two days of demonstrations in Nice last week-no mean feat given that English was very much a minority language. A special issue of the paper had the headline "The World Is Not For Sale" in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch and Greek. 114 people joined the International Socialists, the international grouping of revolutionaries of which the Socialist Workers Party is a part.
Workplace sales of Socialist Worker are increasing each week. Last week 14 copies were sold outside Penarth Road post office in Cardiff, 25 at Ealing Town Hall, 15 at Bristol's central telephone exchange, where �61 was collected for our appeal, 10 at Pfizer chemicals in Sandwich, 7 at Goodyear in Wolverhampton, 6 at each of Dundee DLO, Britannia House council office in Bradford and Nottingham City Treasury, 4 at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, 3 at both Ford Daventry and Redfern Glass in Barnsley. In south London 5 papers were sold at both Nine Elms post office and Frensham Street DLO, while on Merseyside 6 papers were sold at Bell Vale job centre and 4 at Royal Liverpool Hospital.
In the last week, in addition to those who joined the SWP in Nice, 5 people joined at Hackney College; 2 in Dalston, Leeds and Manchester; 1 in Fulham, Westminster University, at the demonstration supporting the Turkish hunger strikers, at a public meeting in central London on the anniversary of Seattle, and on the anti-Nazi protest in Somers Town.
