Building the Socialist Party across Staffordshire:

Newcastle-under-Lyme Socialist Party is now up and running!

On Monday 22 August there was a very good first meeting of Newcastle-under-Lyme Socialist Party in Wolstanton. There was a really good mood of optimism and confidence that we can build a base for Socialist ideas across the area.

We discussed the possibility of standing a candidate in the local elections next May and agreed that we would do regular campaigning activity. A stall was done on Tuesday in Wolstanton with Newcastle member Ronni taking part.

The aim of the stall was to explain that we were against the recent riots but that we were also against the government's attempt to slash public sector jobs and services.

Before we had even set up two BT workers came up to sign the petition and donate to our Fighting Fund! Although it was very quiet with only 27 people signing the petition, we still sold 13 copies of the Socialist.

We are checking out a room for our first public meeting and Socialist Students have a stall booked at the Keele freshers fair. It was agreed that we would meet every two weeks and a branch programme of political discussions was agreed.

Monday 5 September - "What is Socialism"

Monday 19 September - "How can we stop the cuts?"

Monday 26 September - "Why do Marxists stand in elections?"
