In defence of the transitional method | Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal

[This talk was presented on January 18, 2013 at the Socialist Alliance
(Australia) national conference, held in Geelong.]
January 18, 2013 -- Socialist Alliance is currently engaged in a process
of discussion and clarification with Socialist Alternative, with a view
to exploring the possibilities of greater cooperation and unity. How
this will ultimately develop is an open question. But I think it is fair
to say that on both sides today there is a much greater interest in the
political positions and approach of the other.
Recently Omar Hassan, a leader of Socialist Alternative, has criticised
the very concept of a transitional program and our use of it.
Presumably his views more or less reflect the outlook of his
organisation as a whole. I'll consider them later.
