INTERNATIONAL GREETINGS to the Party available here.

‘The crisis is capitalism – Take the road to socialism!’ – this section of our website is the ‘go to’ place for information about our forthcoming congress, November ’21.

It will be the biggest congress of the Party since the 1980s, due to membership growth.

A communist congress is the highest expression of democracy in the labour movement, being lay-led and very much about active participation. Our congress sets Party policy and campaigning priorities and elects a new party leadership, which serves up until the subsequent congress.

A congress happens every two years except in extraordinary circumstances and this Congress, set for November 2020, was delayed as a result of the pandemic. An all-Britain congress alternates with bi annual district and nation congresses.

A period of inner-party discussion is now open and comrades and supporters can use the form to submit contributions, on the basis of the following guidelines, ‘Contributions will be collected for publication here on our website. Comrades are free to express their views, including any disagreements with Party policy, but this should be done in a spirit of reasoned debate and comradeship.’

There are two executive resolutions to comment on. These are published here as ‘The crisis is capitalism – Take the road to socialism!’ (Domestic) and ‘Halting imperialism’s drive to war’ (International). Please use the title and line number when contributing. Party branch, district, and nation organisations have been sent details of how to prepare amendments and motions.

We have provided you with a suite of social media shortcuts to spread the word!
