Party Building Fund

Unlike the establishment parties, the Socialist Equality Party does not have any corporate or union backers. We rely entirely on the generosity of our members and supporters to finance our political campaigns.

The Socialist Equality Party has launched a £50,000 Party-building Fund with the aim of extending its political influence and membership at this crucial juncture.

Working people have come face to face with the systemic failure of the profit system that once again threatens humanity with catastrophe. More than five years on from the financial crash of 2008 it is now apparent that there is no peaceful or easy way out of the economic pandemic gripping the globe. No reformist palliatives will suffice. Only the mobilisation of the international working class for the overthrow of capitalism can provide a way forward.

In the next months, the Socialist Equality Party (SEP) in Britain, together with our comrades in the Partei für Soziale Gleichheit (PSG), will be campaigning in the European elections against the Europe of the corporate elite, austerity and militarism and for the United Socialist States of Europe.

We intend to campaign throughout the UK, urging a no vote in September’s referendum on Scottish independence, opposing all attempts to sow national divisions within the working class and for a united class offensive against the employers.

These and other political initiatives require major resources. The SEP has no big business backers and is beholden to no one other than the working class. We rely wholly and exclusively on the financial support of our members and supporters.

We make our appeal confident that the rich political legacy of the Trotskyist movement, today lead by the International Committee of the Fourth International, and its decades long struggle against Stalinism, reformism and all other pro-capitalist tendencies will find its response among advanced workers and youth.

Since our fund was launched on January 1, we have secured donations totalling £10,000 and pledges of almost £10,000. Help us to complete our total by making a donation today and/or pledge a regular contribution towards our target using the button below.
