Socialist Worker appeal launched: help us raise £150,000

Issue No. 1968

We live in a world where the US had to send troops into both New Orleans and Baghdad to try to keep control.

Unlike the rest of the media, Socialist Worker counteracts the lies and hypocrisy of Bush and Blair’s New World Order.

Every week you can read reports of how people are fighting back in this country and around the world. As an independent publication whose only source of income is from our readers, Socialist Worker faces a constant battle against increasing costs. Please help us raise £150,000 to allow us to continue to improve the paper and distribute it as widely as possible.

The paper that revealed the truth about the destruction of Fallujah

‘It was the smell that first hit me, a smell that is difficult to describe, and one that will never leave me. It was the smell of death… A wave of hate had wiped out two-thirds of the town, destroying houses and mosques, schools and clinics.

This was the terrible and frightening power of the US military assault.

You may think you know what happened in Fallujah. But the truth is worse than you could possibly have imagined…’

Doctor Salam Ismael on the Fallujah massacre in a world exclusive 19 February 2005

The paper that exposed the forged evidence against George Galloway

‘The central document used against George Galloway this week by the US senate committee investigating Iraq’s oil for food programme is a forgery.

Socialist Worker can reveal that evidence crucial to the alleged case against the Respect MP is fake — created after the fall of Baghdad in 2003.

The allegations are another desperate attempt to smear the opponents of the war on Iraq, and to make them appear as the corrupt hirelings of tyranny.'

Charlie Kimber and Simon Assaf 21 May 2005

The paper that reports global and local struggles

‘New Orleans will not be forgiven. It is a turning point in history. Today tens of millions of Americans hate George Bush with an endless, ragged, bleeding rage. I am one of them.’
Jonathan Neale on New Orleans

‘I and other sacked Gate Gourmet workers have greatly appreciated the role of Socialist Worker. SW supporters have visited us at Heathrow, brought us collections and organised solidarity.’
Mr Gill, sacked Gate Gourmet worker

Socialist Worker helped open my eyes to the truth of what is going on in the world. I thank the paper for helping to highlight Christopher’s case. Through my families ordeal it has given me inspiration to fight for what I know to be right.
Janet Alder, sister of Christopher Alder

In the current environment it is critically important that papers like Socialist Worker are produced and distributed as widely as possible. As an activist, the paper provide information and a visual solidarity for people working on many issues.

We need a socialist movement which embraces diversity and principles. Socialist Worker continues to make a big contribution to building such a movement.
Billy Hayes, General secretary Communications Workers Union

Socialist Worker is one of the most serious and best informed papers of the left and should be very widely read and supported.
