This year's Morning Star Bazaar was held in Partick, having been held in Denniston community for a number of years.
At the end of the day, over £1,000 had been taken in sales and donations!
Huge thanks to everyone who helped ensure another successful fundraiser for the Morning Star - the only daily newspaper that stands up for working class people and our communites, as well as our organisations such as the Trade Unions. The Morning Star relies on a Fighting Fund to ensure its survival without the deep pockets of Capitalist backers, so every penny raised and donated makes a difference!

Many in Scotland want to move towards a more socially and sustainable society and there are examples of progress and popular participation presented by the experiences of progressive governments and popular social movements in Latin America. In Scotland we can take inspiration from success there in tackling inequalities, resolving historical conflicts or and promoting the rights of women, ethnic minorities and indigenous peoples. There are also countries in which trade unions and movements opposing oppression need our support.

Morning Star Scottish Conference Autumn 2014 Workshop.
Eddie McGuire & John Foster host a round table discussion of the impact of the EU and the Causes of Austerity.
This conference has been called to discuss steps to increase the circulation of the Morning Star in the face of its acute financial problems and at a time when a consistent daily voice for the trade union movement is needed more than ever.
The conference will be chaired by Agnes Tolmie of Unite.
Speakers will include:
The Morning Star Editor Ben Chacko
Drew Smith MSP
Jane Carolan of Unison
Jackson Cullinane of Unite
Phil McGarry of RMT
Colin Finlay of EIS
The Star needs more readers to survive. Scottish circulation doubled when the new northern print-run was established four years ago but it has been ebbing back since.
The Conference will discuss how to reverse this decline and, more broadly, how to project in localities and workplaces the one paper that champions the policies of the trade union movement and the People’s Charter.
There is no charge. Register at the door.
