Fighting fund: Deliberate?
Robbie Rix wonders if cpgb.org.uk is being attacked, and updates our readers on the fighting fund

£1,034, with exactly a week to go to raise the £1,500 we need to
cover our running costs. And, of course, we need to take steps to
ensure that our website cannot be successfully attacked. Please help
us get the £466 we need by February 28.
