News flash: Generous supporters pledged close to $3,000 in the first week of this campaign. Will you join them now?
Now that another year of pandemic is behind us, it is time for us at Socialist Action to reflect on the year that was 2022, and to replenish our resources.
Inspiring are the first signs of a revival of the workers’ movement, including new union-organizing efforts, the specter of a general strike in Ontario, and the many young workers who are joining the revolutionary socialist movement.
The aim of this New Year’s Fund Appeal is to raise over $7,000 between now and February 28, 2023, to enable Socialist Action Canada to rise to the challenges ahead. We seek to enlist your support for our efforts to build a larger, more effective, non-sectarian, socialist working class party.
Socialist Action Ready To Face 2023 Challenges
The challenges we face – among them, hyper-inflation, galloping authoritarianism, surging environmental catastrophe, and terminal military conflict – are staggering. Socialist Action does not claim to have a magic blueprint solution. But we do stand proudly on 170 years of global political experience and sound principles.
The top acquisition is workers’ self-organization and mass mobilization, independent of the capitalist parties and their state. Another is unity in action, via the workers’ united front tactic.
For many years, Socialist Action Canada has demonstrated, in practice, its commitment to these ideas. Socialist Action led the way in demanding proper PPE in all work places, paid sick leave, full-time employment with a big pay raise for health, education and all front line workers, and the nationalization of the for-profit, private Long Term Care corporations.
Eco Socialist Action, Or Extinction!
Socialist Action Canada pushed for a New Green Deal based on a planned economy under workers’ and community control, starting with restitution for Indigenous people who continue to suffer corporate plunder of their ancestral lands.
Uniquely, we called on environmentalists in the Green Party and in the labour-based New Democratic Party to unite and form a Revolutionary Eco-socialist alliance.
Socialist Action vigorously advances the cause of socialism and democracy by building the Workers’ Action Movement in unions, and the NDP Socialist Caucus.
WAM and the NDP SC had a substantial positive impact at labour and NDP conventions in 2022.
We are dedicated activists in the Canadian Network for Cuba and in campaigns for justice for the Palestinian people, including the Canadian Coalition for Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment.
We actively oppose the inter-imperialist war between NATO and Russia, and rising western hostility towards China.
Socialist Action Canada is a partner in the No Fighter Jets campaign, in support of the pro-Indigenous Land Back movement, in Queer Ontario, the No Pride in Police Coalition, feminist campaigns for equal pay and a demand to end to sexist violence.
Help Socialist Action Build United Front Alliance!
Socialist Action helped to launch the Municipal Socialist Alliance in Ontario, Vote Socialist in Vancouver (each of which attracted thousands of votes), and was at the forefront of efforts to De-fund, Disarm and Disband the Police, in tandem with tenants’ rights bodies, ODSP survivors, and the Labour May Day Committee.
Socialist Action Canada defends free speech against those who would curtail it by conflating Anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism. We join with many others in confronting racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and fascism.
What will Socialist Action do with the money that you generously donate? We will strengthen the many Socialist Action Canada’s social media platforms.
Be sure to follow Socialist Action on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Tens of thousands of people visited socialistaction.ca this year. Higher visibility will enable us to build new branches across the Canadian state, hire more staff, publish more booklets, create more banners, flags and placards, and field more candidates in municipal elections.
Are we in a hurry? Frankly, yes!
Time is running short to save humanity and nature from capitalist catastrophe.
But with your help, there is a much better chance of survival – even to make a better world. What do you say?
