(front page)
More and more of those purchasing the book Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers Power, by Jack Barnes, and subscribers to this paper are deciding to also contribute to the Militant fund. The international effort to raise $110,000 for the Militant by May 12 has so far netted $13,796.

Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers Power is at the center of a Militant fund-raising meeting planned for April 3 in San Francisco. The event will feature a panel including Carlos Narváez, a member of UNITE HERE Local 2, which is involved in fights for new contracts at many hotels here. He has gotten three copies of the book thus far, one for himself, one for his brother, and one for another union member. Also speaking is Zach Liddle, a student at San Francisco State University who is currently participating in classes on the book, and James Harris, a member of the SWP National Committee.

In New York fund organizers called a list of people who have renewed their Militant subscriptions at least once before. They began by contacting readers who have been long-term subscribers. Four of them pledged $275 to the fund, the first time they have contributed financially to the paper. “One reader had renewed his subscription before Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers Power was printed. So when we visited him to pick up his $100 contribution to the fund, we also sold him the book,” wrote Dan Fein. The contributor said, “Any time the Militant is doing fund-raising, give me a call.”

Fein spoke at a March 26 Militant Labor Forum in New York on “Washington’s War against Working People at Home and Abroad: The Working Class Needs to Take Political Power.” Participants contributed $3,750 to the Militant fund and pledged another $4,000.

The Militant fund is an annual effort to win contributions from working people to finance the Militant. Funds raised help cover the cost of producing the paper, as well as travel costs for on-the-scene reporting of developments in the class struggle worldwide. Send contributions for the fund to 306 W. 37th St., 10th Floor, New York, N.Y. 10018. Make checks out to the Militant.
