    Miners, other workers snap up the ‘Militant’ - The Militant, NY
    There was a similar response to last week’s issue across the United States and other countries, especially among miners. For that reason, the Militant went to press a second time, with some 13,000 copies of that issue distributed—more than double the normal run. Partisans of the paper are getting additional bundles of the last issue to continue selling in coming weeks at the special price of 25 cents per copy.

    This response by working people is building momentum in the campaign to win 1,000 readers to renew their subscriptions or purchase long-term subs.
