Britain: Socialist Party national congress 2014

Preparing for a mighty upsurge in class struggle

On 8-10 March the Socialist Party (CWI in England & Wales) held its annual national congress in Clacton. Around 300 delegates and visitors attended the very successful event. Branch delegates voted on resolutions and amendments agreeing both political perspectives and organisational aims. The congress showed enthusiasm throughout the Socialist Party for building from the opportunities we face, which was particularly shown in the sessions on finance and party building.

Over £13,000 was raised in a fighting fund collection and the congress launched an election appeal to help towards the costs of campaigns for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, No2EU – Yes To Workers’ Rights and the Workers And Socialist Party in South Africa (donate at www.socialistparty.org.uk/donate).
