The financial appeal we launched on 14 May has had a very good response. We've managed to raise $2,100 out of the $2,500 needed. Now we ask for one last push to raise the last $400.
The Bolivian comrades of the "Corriente Marxista Interancional" (International Marxist Tendency) have been regularly publishing their paper El Militante since November 2008. This has been achieved with great effort and sacrifice.
The Bolivian comrades have produced a paper which puts forward a Marxist point of view and represents the voice of the vanguard of the workers, peasants and youth fighting for socialism in the Andean country.
The paper has done its best to cover all the major struggles of the workers, the students, the MAS youth, the election campaign in December 2009 which saw the re-election of Evo Morales, etc. But now the printer in which the comrades produce El Militante has broken down.
In order to allow them to continue producing the paper, leaflets and documents to intervene in the revolutionary movement, they need to raise US$ 2500 – a huge sum for a poor country like Bolivia.
Fortunately, the spirit of proletarian internationalism has prevailed! We are delighted to report that we have almost reached our target. The breakdown so far is as follows:
Comrades from Austria have generously donated €700 ($880) and comrades from Sweden $100. Comrade AB from Britain has given a magnificent donation of £500 ($720) and comrades JB and HB from Britain gave £100 ($145).
Out of the $255 that have been given on chip-in, we would like to emphasize the donation of comrade HD from Indonesia $40. Comrade JM from France and BT from Britain have both donated $50. Comrade JL from Sweden $25, comrades MA from Denmark, OA from Brazil and TK donated $20 each and comrades MC, ZZ from the US and FL from Brazil all donated $10 each.
We thank all the comrades for their contributions, and ask those who have not yet contributed to consider giving a small or large sum.
We are within only $400 of reaching our target. One final push will do the trick. Over to you, comrades!!
