The Socialist – sales success

by Martin Reynolds

Martin Reynolds selling The Socialist

I sold 23 copies of the Socialist and raised an extra £13.50 fighting fund outside Blackhorse Road tube station, north east London, on 17 March.

One building worker stopped and bought a copy. Then, ten minutes later, his workmate stopped for a paper. When they met up and he realised his workmate already had a copy he said he’d share his with his other workmates.

Clearly, site workers are discussing the issues of Ukraine and the cost-of-living crisis with each other and looking for answers.

Recently, I’ve also had a few East European construction workers buy the paper, understandably concerned with the war taking place close to their home countries.
