Peter Taaffe speaks in Birkenhead

Birkenhead born Peter Taaffe, general secretary of the Socialist Party, returned to his hometown on Monday 24th April to speak about the situation in Britain today and also his new book - 'From Militant to the Socialist Party' - being published soon by Socialist Books. The book is a sequel to the Rise of Militant, also written by Peter, and covers events and the Socialist Party's role between 1995 and 2007.
Dave Jones from Wirral Socialist Party reports:

The largest Socialist Party meeting in Birkenhead in many a year saw 60 people hear Peter Taaffe powerfully spell out the challenges and opportunities for Socialists today. Roger Bannister, TUSC City Region Mayor candidate, and Angela Grant, PCS activist, also addressed the meeting.

The contributions from the floor, applications to join the Socialist Party, and a financial appeal raising nearly 700 were testament to the inspiring atmosphere.

Birkenhead has a long and proud militant history, this meeting demonstrates that socialism has a bright future here as well.
