Dear comrades and friends,
We are entering a new, stormy period of class struggle in Britain. After a decade of brutal cuts, we have been dealt the shock result of another Tory majority. However, this will not be a stable government. Another recession is on the horizon, and with it a fresh wave of attacks on the working class.
This perspective can only mean an intensification of the class struggle - not only in Britain but across the world. Everywhere the working class is desperately seeking a solution to this crisis. Only the ideas of Marxism can provide a way forward for the struggle against capitalism. But not the ideas alone.
With the Blairites emboldened by a defeat they helped to deliver, we must prepare ourselves for a fresh fight over the soul and direction of the Labour Party. In the new leadership election and the debates opening up at a local level, you can be sure the right wing will have their representatives and mouthpieces making the case for a return back to the black hole of the 'centre-ground'.
Now more than ever we need a clear sighted, powerful Marxist tendency to provide organisation and leadership for the left.
For this we need your help.
Ultimately, the force of our ideas will depend on our ability to sink deep roots in the mass organisations of the working class. Needless to say, this cannot be achieved without resources, not only to produce our newspapers and other literature, but to co-ordinate our work centrally. The more we grow, and grow we must, the more full-timers will be needed to perform these important tasks.
This is an appeal to all comrades to give what they can to this Fighting Fund appeal, and to raise it amongst friends, sympathisers, trade union branches, and anywhere we can in the wider movement.
Unlike the Blairites, we have no big business backers. We depend solely on the sacrifice and support of our comrades in the Labour movement. Any donation that you can make will be a vital contribution to our cause - the building of a strong Marxist leadership for the British working class and for the final victory of socialism the world over.
