23784DSP NE statement on CPGB article 'DSP split over future'
- Dec 1, 2005DSP National Executive statement in response to the article “DSP split
over future” by Greg Adler published in Weekly Worker (the newspaper of
the Communist Party of Great Britain) 603 Thursday December 1, 2005:
The publication by the CPGB and former Australian Socialist Alliance
member Greg Adler of selected and out-of-context quotations from the
internal discussion being held in the Democratic Socialist Perspective
in the lead-up to its congress in January 2006 is a calculated and
malicious attempt to destroy the modest progress in regrouping the left
made by the Socialist Alliance over the last four years.
The DSP membership, like the membership of any Socialist Alliance
affiliate, has the right to have a frank internal discussion about the
DSP’s perspectives towards the Alliance. Since the inception of the
Alliance and prior to every DSP congress our members have always
participated in a frank discussion about these relations.
The DSP has been the strongest builder of the Socialist Alliance and has
made great sacrifices to advance this left regroupment project. It also
has an unblemished record of operating constructively, democratically
and collaboratively within the Alliance. Unfortunately, the same cannot
be said of Greg Adler.
In the DSP’s internal discussion, a variety of views are expressed by
members. None of them should be equated with the views of the DSP, even
if these are views expressed by individuals holding leadership positions
in the DSP.
The DSP remains completely committed to building the Socialist Alliance
and a broad, multi-tendency socialist party project. Any change in this
position will be promptly reported to the Socialist Alliance and
DSP National Executive
