A DISABLED activist has said he reads the Morning Star because it gives him hope.
The man, who requested not to be named, made the comments to Morning Star campaigns manager Steve Sweeney at the paper’s Southampton readers and supporters group on Wednesday night.
“That underlined to me the importance of the Morning Star,” said Mr Sweeney.
“It was also good to meet a supporter who has been reading and selling the paper for over 50 years and commended the Morning Star for the role it continues to play in the movement.”
Southampton was the first leg in Mr Sweeney’s pilgrimage to such readers and supporters groups across the country — dubbed the RSG Roadshow.
“It was interesting to hear about their work and what they are planning for the Morning Star over the coming year, including involvement in the Left Fest event which supporters have been involved in organising,” said Mr Sweeney.
He added that supporters were “crucial” to the success of the paper and a significant “voice of the resistance” against the newly elected Tory government.
