Over the past week five new contributors increased the total of the Socialist Workers Party special “stimulus” appeal to $132,300. The number of contributors stands at 120.
“My check finally came,” wrote Greg McCartan, an early partisan of the appeal. “I’m sending my contribution gladly to help ‘stimulate’ the SWP’s work to organize, educate and lead tens of millions of working people to take power.”
The appeal was launched in late March when Congress announced the special “stimulus payout,” after an initiative from several party supporters who asked how to make out their check when they got their payment. That put the appeal on its way. It has steadily grown over the last three months and continues to do so.
The funds are dedicated to building a financial long-term stake for the SWP — to build a proletarian party as the crisis of capitalism and the class struggle unfolds. A party that will organize workers and their allies to end capitalist exploitation and rule, and join hands with toilers worldwide to build a new social order based on human solidarity.
