rather cute), but why should I know about this campaign within the
ALP? It's the first time you've reported on it here that I can
remember. And I have looked in vain for evidence of it on your
website, or much else about your struggles within the ALP to build a
genuine socialist pole (as opposed to every twist and turn of your
ongoing debates with the DSP).
I think it is terrific that such a struggle is taking place. But why
keep it so well hidden? Go public! Keep us in the loop. Tell us about
this campaign's successes on the list more often. Write an article or
letter about it for Green Left Weekly. Tell us when actions or forums
are being organised and we'll help publicise them. We are happy to
cooperate with those who prepared to build a genuine uncompromising
fighting left in the ALP.
