Towards a Socialist Alliance Party - second edition

ByJack Conrad

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Second edition. Some comrades in the Socialist Alliance say we should settle for a loose conglomeration of leftwing groups and local campaigns. For these comrades the word ‘party’, when it comes to the Socialist Alliance, is an anathema. It is as if they were anarchists. Of course such comrades already their own ‘party’. Jack Conrad argues, however, that there is no party. They are groups or, worse, sects. Members who disagree with the described ‘line’ are expected to gag themselves in public. Either that or face expulsion. The Socialist Alliance must become a party and seek to arm itself with the most advanced theory. In reality, we already are a party in many senses. We have a common elected leadership, common election candidates and common finances. The Socialist Alliance is also officially registered as a party. What matters is not the name, but creating a genuine party ethos. Drawing on an extensive study of history, this booklet presents the ways and means at arriving at that end.
