Canada is over the top of its quota of $7,000. “We received more contributions today so we’re at $7,550 with more to come,” wrote Bev Bernardo, organizer of the fund there. “We’re working to get 10 new contributors — we have five so far. We’ve turned to regular readers of the Militant, many of whom said they were inspired by the paper’s firsthand coverage from Ukraine, the response to door-to-door sales of the socialist press, and recent articles on the historic strengthening of the working class in Canada as a result of blows dealt to national oppression against Quebecois.”
Contributions are used to subsidize the Militant’s operating expenses and make possible reporting trips. In the next week, the Militant will be fielding its second reporting team to Ukraine.
“The pledges tended to be higher than recent funds,” said Paul Pederson, director of the fund in Los Angeles. “Many commented on the first-hand coverage of workers’ struggles in Ukraine when we called them to ask for a pledge.”
Contributions received in the Militant office by June 3 count towards the campaign. To help, contact distributors on page 8 or send a check or money order to the Militant, 306 W. 37th St., 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018-2472.
