Dear comrades,

Thanks for the solidarity mesage from the CWI Summer School.

I am attaching a couple of documents which I hope you could circulate throughout the CWI for use primarily in workplaces and trade unions, but also amongst any MPs, MEPs etc that you are in touch with.

As you can well understand, we are in urgent need of a response politically in the form of protests and solidarity messages, but also in the form of donations and collections towards the Scottish Socialist Appeal Fund – to pay the wages of MSPs who already live on a worker’s wage (all of whom have children, three of whom are lone parents) and other SSP staff and full-time organisers.

Protest to George Reid, Presiding Officer, Scottish Parliament, Queensbury House, Edinburgh EH99 1SP or email

Send copies/messages of support to

Any donations/collections should be made payable to the ’Scottish Socialist Appeal Fund’ and posted to Richie Venon, SSP, 70 Stanley St, Glasgow G41 1JB – or lodged directly into the Coop Bank, Sort Code 08 92 99 account No 65094637

Thanks for any solidarity you can muster.


Richie Venton
