Two days left
Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund
As I write, there are just two days left to reach our £2,000 fighting fund target for April, but at the moment we don’t even have £1,500.
Unfortunately the last week has been another disappointing one - a mere £170 came our way, taking the running total to just £1,457. There were, despite that, a couple of highlights which stood out: £50 donations from both DB (via PayPal) and JT (standing order). Other SOs were from DR (£25), DG (£20), GT (£15) and JM (£10). But that’s it, I’m afraid.
So can we get there? Yes, we can. Either follow DB’s lead and click on our PayPal button; or log on to your online bank account and make a transfer. That’s preferable for us, of course, as there’s no fee deducted - make the payment to account number 00744310 (sort code: 30-99-64). Please make sure it lands in our account by Friday April 30.
We need to ensure we reach that £2K target whenever we can - especially now that we’re about to resume printing. It looks like that’s going to happen by early June, so there’s something to look forward to!
Don’t forget what the Weekly Worker - alone amongst the left press - stands for: the unity of all Marxists on a principled, Marxist and, above all, genuinely democratic basis. If you agree with that aim - which needs to happen sooner rather than later - then please help ensure we not only keep publishing, but improve and expand the content of our paper.
You know what to do!
