From The Socialist newspaper, 15 December 2005

Campaign for a new workers' party

The campaign is gaining support with signatures from workers, trade unionists, students and community activists.

This week, a sixth UNISON NEC member signed the declaration. There are now 25 trade union NEC members in support of the campaign (all in a personal capacity).

Supporters of the campaign are using the declaration and petition in their workplaces, colleges and local communities to raise the idea of a new workers' party.

Also, Socialist Party branches are holding stalls and meetings and discussing the campaign with those who are searching for genuine working-class representation and an alternative to the mainstream political parties.

The website for the campaign is now up at www.cnwp.org.uk. You can read the full text of the declaration, sign-up in support and read about events related to the campaign.

If you haven't already, please read and sign the declaration and ask others to do so as well. Get in touch with the campaign by emailing info@cnwp.org.uk.

The declaration states:

New signatories this week include (all in a personal capacity):

John Jones UNISON NEC, Kevin Kelly PCS National Vice-President, Teresa MacKay Chair Agricultural Trade Sector TGWU, Luke Aylward President Socialist Students Society University of Lincoln, Ron Isaacs AMICUS, Brian Debus Joint branch secretary Hackney Unison, M Waterfall Chair Hackney Unison, Thomas Penman Leicester University Student Union LGBT officer, Nick Parker Leicester University Student Union Campaigns and Representatives Committee officer, Steve Wootton CWU South West Engineering Branch Committee member, Phil Clarke NUT, Glyn Matthews USDAW, Emmet O'Brien PCS GEC member MP Group.
