Fourth International online

Nearly there for 10 000 target!

Friday 29 May 2020, by Penelope Duggan

On 6 May we launched an appeal for 10 000 euros to strengthen and extend our online presence - something that has been and continues to be particularly necessary in this lockdown period.

It has posed new challenges but also forced us to find new methods of communication and given new opportunities.

Print journals have posted PDF versions online like Inprecor “French Inprecor No 672/673 available in PDF”.

National organizations have organized online meetings and webinars for their national audiences. But they have also been able to invite comrades from other countries either if they can speak the translation of the host or proposing translation. We have shared these events through the Fourth International Facebook page and other social media - we cannot ignore these possibilities.

We hope to reach the 10 000 euros goal very shortly given the excellent response – contributions have come in from Austria, Belgium, Britain, France, Greece, Ireland, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Slovenia, Taiwan and the USA to bring us to a total of 9000 euros.

Our goal is then to stabilize our day to day online presence. Consolidating the availability of our archives will be a longer-term project. We’ll keep you posted!

Our Appeal

By making a donation towards our goal of 10 000 euros you will contribute to broadening the dissemination of our writings and analyses, of an open and critical Marxism at the service of anti-capitalist, ecosocialist, feminist, anti-racist and internationalist struggles.

International Viewpoint and Inprecor are currently the two websites and the paper journal published by the Fourth International, in English and French respectively. We now wish to broaden the online dissemination of our writings and analyses by relaunching a Spanish-language site, Punto de Vista Internacional, which will allow us to follow and fuel debates around struggles in Latin America and the Spanish State.

We also want to strengthen our online presence as an organization by creating a Fourth International website in three languages. This site aims to make the documents of the World Congresses and the official statements of the FI, its International Committee and Bureau easily accessible. Similarly, the site will feature articles from and list links to our member and observer organizations; and provide easy access to expanded archives of our current on the RaDAR, Red Mole Rising and Marxists.org sites. The site will also give visibility to the International Youth Camp, its programme, reports of its activity, etc. Articles of analysis or related to current events will also be published in three languages (English, Castilian, French).

The creation of these sites, the graphic design, the hosting, the computer equipment, all this has a cost and the Fourth International can only count on its militant forces for its financing. This is why we are launching this call for donations.

By making a donation towards our goal of 10 000 euros you will contribute to broadening the dissemination of our writings and analyses, of an open and critical Marxism at the service of anti-capitalist, ecosocialist, feminist, anti-racist and internationalist struggles.
