US publication People’s World is bucking a global trend with a doubling of its circulation since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, its editorial team announced on Monday.
The socialist website, which was founded in 1924 as the Daily Worker newspaper, reached two million unique readers last year and is on course to beat that in 2020, they said in a statement.
People’s World is covering protests by nurses, the experiences of Uber drivers, Amazon workers and other issues facing the labour and progressive movement while challenging US President Donald Trump’s “anti-China racism and scapegoating.”
“We’re very proud of what we produce, with limited staff and resources. Readers know they can count on us as an essential source of information to protect their health, hear the voices of front-line workers, and learn about battles to get personal protective equipment (PPE) to the front lines.”
“People are profoundly questioning capitalism. They are asking: How could such a wealthy country be so incapable of providing basic necessities to millions?
“Many are coming to realise life will never return to what it was before the pandemic.
“They are open to new ideas and imagining what the future might bring,” the statement said, urging people to donate so People’s World can reach an even larger audience.
