You can always go into the weekend with a smile on your face when you receive £818.76 as a daily total as I have yesterday.
Your smile gets broader when you know that a large chunk of this has come in as a result of the tireless skill of our woodturner in Sheffield who is producing beautiful wooden goods that virtually fly off the lathe at public events like the recent South Yorkshire Christmas market. Proof of this the £700 I have received.
While I welcome the dedication of this artist, I also remember the key political role he plays in our lively South Yorkshire supporters group, whose last meeting added £35 to his sales income.
His role in the local Unite branch also benefits our paper hugely with his motion calling for two hefty annual donations for us each year.
I also pay tribute to our two young 90+ activists in Swindon who always send in at least £20 per month to this Fund.
What with two more £20s and two £10s sent online I must declare myself madly in love with socialism and those Fund supporters who have kept the mighty Morning Star out there for almost 77 years.
Ms May has had it politically but those who keep her in office for their own purposes certainly have not had it unless and until this paper helps the working class to rid Britain of the Tory pestilence.
You can’t buy a revolution, but you can help the only daily paper in Britain that’s fighting for one by donating to the FIGHTING FUND. The Morning Star is unique, as a lone socialist voice in a sea of neoliberal media. We offer a platform for those who would otherwise never be listened to, coverage of stories that would otherwise be buried. The rich don’t like us, and they don’t advertise with us, so we rely on you, our readers and friends. With a regular donation to our monthly Fighting Fund, we can continue to thumb our noses at the fat cats and tell truth to power. Donate today and make a regular contribution...
