Up the pace

Regular readers of this column will know that the Weekly Worker is potentially facing a substantial increase in its printing costs, following the problems encountered by our previous printers. We’ve not yet found a permanent replacement, although hopefully that will be rectified very soon.

Thankfully, though, our supporters understand only too well the situation we are in - which is why so many of you are determined to help us overcome the financial challenge through your contributions to the fighting fund. For example, in the first week of February, 22 comrades have chipped in with their donations. The most generous was AC, who donated a magnificent £100, while the others helped ensure we started the month with a bang.

Another 19 comrades contributed by either standing order or bank transfer - thank you, BO (£35), CG (£30), RG, NR and GD (£25 each), BK (£20), BG and MT (£15), TM (£13), MM (£11), AN, CP, DI, YM, IS and SM (a tenner each), DC and JS (£6), and finally AM (£3). On top of that, MH and GW both donated £10 via PayPal.

We’re so grateful to all those comrades, who have really showed their backing for this paper and its commitment to the single, united Marxist party that we so desperately need. But, although 22 comrades is a very satisfying number, I do have to point out that all those contributions come to just £409 towards our £2,250 target, with a quarter of the (admittedly very short) month already gone.

So now we really need to up the pace with some even more substantial donations. Can you help us out? To find out how, go to the web address below and choose the method you want to use to do that!
