Raising fighting fund in RCT

Rhondda Cynon Taff Socialist Party has achieved over 200% of its fighting fund target, helped by collecteing close to £100 in just a week and a half, with over 200 copies of the socialist also sold in that time.

Donations from the public are gratefully received by any one of our many campaigners. Our target is £2,300 for the whole of Wales, and the money is vitally needed to help pay for much-needed leaflets and other material. The branch has recently started to distribute a monthly newsletter.

We did a lot of campaigning regarding the cuts proposed by Rhondda Cynon Taff council during the election campaign, demanding that the Welsh Assembly make the cuts tactics of the council illegal with members of the branch knocking doors every weekday evening, selling copies of the socialist and raising fighting fund.

We received a lot of agreement and support from the general public in our campaign and the branch has agreed to continue to door-to-door campaigning, now against the proposed part closure of two local hospitals.
