Militant Fighting Fund key to financing the paper

The Militant is 100% financed by its readers — workers, farmers and youth who think the paper’s coverage is crucial to help our class find a road forward against the attacks of the bosses, their government and their state. We accept no paid advertising.

Every year we do one major fundraising campaign — the Militant Fighting Fund — which is at the heart of being able to publish. This year we are seeking to raise $165,000.

This comes at a time important class battles are being waged. “The Ukrainian people continue to resist every attempt by Moscow to crush their spirit and take their country,” a letter seeking contributions for the fund in New York March 20 began. “Bank collapses reflect capitalist rulers’ crisis. Working people in East Palestine, Ohio, fight for control over the cleanup of their town. U.S. maternal mortality hits the highest level since 1965. Protests to defend retirement provisions break out from France to Iran. Cuban workers and farmers continue to defend their socialist revolution against Washington’s assault.

“The Militant is the place every week to learn about and share examples of how workers, farmers and all the oppressed in the country and around the world are discussing how, and beginning to, fight back.”

The letter urges readers to get involved. “Help us spread the Militant’s unique coverage far and wide. Order some extra issues to get around to co-workers and friends. Write for the paper or send a photo if you are involved in a struggle at work or in your city or town.”

And, of course, “Contribute needed funds to keep the paper coming out.”

Please give as generously as you can. Contact distributors nearest you, or send your check to the Militant, 306 W. 37th Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018, or contribute on line at
