From The Socialist newspaper, 1 December 2005

Campaign for a New Workers' Party

Support grows for an alternative

The support for the Campaign for a New Workers' Party is growing with the number of signatories to the declaration steadily increasing.

Trade unionists from across England and Wales have been adding their names to the list with local launches planned in the New Year (details will be advertised in the socialist once they are confirmed).

Many of those signing up have expressed their discontent with the role being played by the New Labour government and the constant attacks on workers, young people, pensioners and all other oppressed groups in society.

Also, signatories have said that, as the other mainstream parties do not pose any alternative to big business politics, it is time for a party that will represent the genuine interests of the working class.

The declaration states:

If you support the campaign but have not yet signed up to the declaration, contact info@cnwp.org.uk to get a copy of the full version or request any further information.

Once signed up, don't stop there - get involved! Contact the email address above for advice and publicity material to build support in your local town or trade union or to invite a speaker from the campaign to attend a local meeting.

Supporters of the campaign in Manchester recently gained six new signatories by holding a stall outside the Benefits Agency in the city centre.

Supporters include:

Janice Godrich PCS President, Chris Baugh PCS Assistant General Secretary, Marion Lloyd PCS NEC, Rob Williams PCS NEC, Mark Baker PCS NEC, Jane Aitchison PCS DWP President, Sevi Yesidalli PCS NEC, John McInally PCS NEC, Danny Williamson PCS NEC, Kevin Greenway PCS NEC, Diane Shepherd UNISON NEC, Glenn Kelly UNISON NEC, Jean Thorpe UNISON NEC, Raph Parkinson UNISON NEC, Roger Bannister UNISON NEC, Andrew Price NATFHE NEC, Bernard Roome CWU NEC, Gary Jones CWU NEC, Linda Taaffe NUT NEC, Robbie Segal USDAW NEC, Molly Cooper NUJ NEC, Jim Barbour FBU NEC, Dave Nellist Coventry Socialist Party Councillor, Karen Mackay Coventry Socialist Party Councillor, Ian Page Lewisham Socialist Party Councillor, Chris Flood Lewisham Socialist Party Councillor.
