‘Militant’ special ‘stimulus’ fund drive is off to a strong start!

Militant readers have responded with a strong start to our special appeal!

Since Congress, in the midst of a deep social, economic and health crisis facing working people, voted for a second “stimulus” payout of $600, with additional payouts to those with children, 19 supporters of the Militant have already sent in $12,642 to help the paper expand its reach.

“My co-workers here at Walmart often ask what I’m going to do with my stimulus check,” Samir Hazboun wrote from Louisville, Kentucky, after Congress voted. “I always say I’m going to give it back to the working class since it’s from our backs that the wealth is created in the first place. Many co-workers know this is true and have great respect for that decision.”

The Militant’s weekly coverage of the unfolding working-class struggles today — from farmers protesting in their hundreds of thousands in India to the aluminum workers on strike at Constellium in Alabama — and its coverage of the Socialist Workers Party’s campaigns and fighting action program, to articles and features to educate on the history and hard-earned lessons of the class struggle, are crucial for workers. They advance a road for workers to defend themselves and advance our class interests, a road toward workers taking power to end the dictatorship of capital and its brutal consequences.

This special fund appeal will help the Militant meet our expenses until the annual spring Militant Fighting Fund is launched in late March, along with the spring subscription drive. Our only source of income is our readers. The contributions will strengthen the paper’s capacity to respond in a timely way to unfolding developments in the class struggle today in the U.S. and worldwide.

Please give as generously as you can. Send your contribution to the Militant, 306 W. 37th Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018, or you can donate online at themilitant.com.
