Swindon Socialist Alliance (now Socialist Unity)
is standing a candidate for North Swindon in the
General Election. In council elections in the
town we regularly achieve an average of 10% in
the wards we contest.
Unlike the mainstream parties we do not have
rich financial backers. The financial deposit of
£500 is also a significant hurdle for minor
parties who may not achieve 5% of the vote to
get it back.
Our election campaign is costed at £2000, and we
are several hundreds of pounds short of that
target. A good result in Swindon will vindicate
the idea that the electorate will respond to a
straightforward socialist message. But that
requires that we fight a high profile campaign –
for which we need money.
Supporters in Swindon are each giving £100, or
as much as they can afford. Please can
socialists outside of Swindon, who do not have a
local candidate that they can support – please
send cheques payable to “Swindon Socialist
Alliance”, at PO Box 1177, Swindon, SN1 4XB.
Please help us take a socialist message to the
working classes in Swindon.
