Socialist Party camp

Sixty people attended the Socialist Party (SP) summer camp in Ware, Hertfordshire, on the August bank holiday weekend, organised by Eastern region SP.

As well as the political discussions, including ‘100 years since the Dublin Lockout’ , many campers took part in the activities such as the climbing wall, archery and even axe throwing!

Over £800 was pledged to the fighting fund appeal at the Saturday night ‘World in Turmoil’ meeting, where SP general secretary Peter Taaffe introduced the discussion.
