The appeal to raise £150,000 for Socialist Worker has reached over a third of the target this week, passing £50,000.
Last week over 350 people attended a screening of Sergei Eisenstein’s 1927 film October about the Russian Revolution at Friends Meeting House in central London as part of a Socialist Film Club fundraiser for the Socialist Worker appeal.
Lindsey German opened with a fantastic introduction. The storming of the Winter Palace towards the end of the film was greeted with huge applause.
Over £1,600 was raised for the appeal from ticket sales, a raffle and donations from those who attended.
The next film showing is Proud Valley starring Paul Robeson introduced by Tony Benn on 11 November.
Also this week Dyana Rodiriguez from Hereford wrote to us saying, “I enclose a cheque for £10 as a donation towards your work.
“Being on pension credit, I can’t afford more. I had to give up work early, because of having an illness, so I was unable to save towards a private pension.
“Yours for peace and justice.”
