The Morning Star is by your side in the struggle like no other paper, so sign up to help us grow, urges David Peel

The Morning Star is on the march with the TUC and the people of Britain this weekend. Why?

When the director of a company is exposed in the Morning Star as earning the annual living wage in one hour, you feel rightly furious and you know why Britain needs a pay rise.

When one million of your neighbours, including many in work, are having to use food banks as reported by the Morning Star, you are appalled and disgusted, and you know why Britain needs a pay rise.

When the Bank of England governor who earns £480,000 a year, with a £250,000 housing allowance and £200,000 relocation expenses, tells the TUC that Britain’s workers are suffering the deepest pay cuts since the 1920s, and he does it with a straight face, you know why there is a Morning Star.

This weekend, the Morning Star will do what no other daily newspaper, TV or radio station in Britain will do — it will offer unrivalled coverage of the march and of why we march. No-one else will do it.

But, we cannot go on like this.

The Morning Star Summer of Heroes appeal has now raised an extraordinary £140,000. Every penny has been spent keeping this paper alive and publishing, day in and day out, and developing our new digital offering — the Morning Star app.

Distributors will be handing out free copies on the march to you in your thousands. They will be marching behind its banner and alongside workers and their families, the unemployed, disabled, those on benefits, the LGBT community and the many migrants who have been persecuted and abused by the new darlings of the mainstream media Ukip.

We march because this is a campaigning newspaper. We don’t sit and watch the struggle, we are in the struggle, and we march with the people of Britain to win. But we cannot continue to serve this movement on thin air, or no air at all.

We must raise £10,000 by October 31.

This great paper has been at the heart of the movement for peace and socialism for 85 years. 

It’s time for the thousands of individuals who march to become Morning Star readers and become subscribers.

Next May there is a general election. We will know then if Ukip’s surge means this racist party holds the balance of power. We will know then if Labour have flunked it because of timid policies and a cuts agenda to rival the Tories at their worst.

Where are you going to find the analysis and news, the depth of thinking and the strategic insight, to approach any of these issues without the Morning Star?

You — all of you reading this — should be signing up to the e-edition right now, especially while it is on special offer.

You should be sharing it with your friends and encouraging them to share it with theirs.

You should be committing to this great newspaper because in truth, if you don’t, it will shut down.

They say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. The ruling class do and if we shut down they will be laughing all the way to their gold-plated pensions.

Here’s the Morning Star web address — use your mobiles to use it as you march and subscribe to the app.
