Best week for party fund drive
Supporters of the Socialist Workers Party have had their best week to date in the party-building fund drive, raising more than $20,600 towards the goal of $98,000 for the communist movement. At the end of the sixth week a total of $73,985 has been collected.

A meeting for the fund was held October 30 in Miami. Twenty-four people participated in a wide-ranging political discussion about world politics, following talks by Ma’mud Shirvani from the SWP in New York and Jean Baptiste Silas from the SWP in Miami.

Contributions totaling $1,169 gave a big boost to the $3,000 goal in Miami.

“Why the Working Class Needs a Revolutionary Party to Confront the Capitalist Economic Crisis” was the topic of an October 30 fund meeting in Los Angeles. Rebecca Williamson, SWP candidate for U.S. Congress in Iowa, was the featured speaker.

“The party utilizes tremendous resources to go where we need to go, to show what a revolutionary party stands for,” explained Williamson. “Each contribution makes a difference.” More than $500 in new pledges were made and $2,005 collected.

The fund ends on November 9. All contributions received by Monday, November 15 will be counted in the final chart. Make your check out to SWP and send it to 306 W. 37th St., 10th floor, New York, NY 10018.
