Socialist Party Scotland to be launched
The Scottish section of the Committee for a Workers' International - the International Socialists - is changing its name to Socialist Party Scotland.
The new organisation will be launched at a rally in Glasgow on Thursday 10 June. Speaking at the rally will be Joe Higgins, the Socialist Party Ireland MEP and Hannah Sell of the Socialist Party in England and Wales, Brian Smith the secretary of Glasgow Unison and Graeme McCiver the national secretary of Solidarity, among others.
We have chosen this new name because we believe that it allows us to have a clearer banner that will help attract new young people and workers to the ranks of the CWI. It also has the distinct advantage of making a direct link with our sister parties in England, Wales and Ireland who are also known as Socialist Party.
We will continue to work to build Solidarity - Scotland's Socialist Movement, alongside Tommy Sheridan and help to develop TUSC as a step to the building of a new mass workers' party.
