If you think all the big political parties are the same - you're right! The bosses have got three parties - isn't it about time we had one of our own?
The Campaign for a New Workers' Party (CNWP) was launched in 2006 by socialists, trade unionists, community campaigners and young people who'd had enough of the establishment parties and wanted to fight for a working-class political voice.
The CNWP now has nearly 4000 supporters signed up to it, including 40 members of trade union national executives as well as many rank and file activists and campaigners.
We are increasingly playing a role in pushing for the affiliated trade unions to break the link with the Labour Party and popularising the idea of a new, independent mass party for working people. At the 2008 conferences of both the CWU and UNISON motions were moved by CNWP supporters to review the link with New Labour. Without the role that our campaign has played, discussions such as these would not have taken place.
Most ordinary trade unionists are rightly sickened at the fact that money still finds its way into the coffers of the Labour Party and we are consistently forcing a debate in this area while at the same time raising the need for a political alternative.
Our supporters are involved in many different struggles across the country; a new mass workers' party would play an important role in linking up these struggles and giving new layers of working people the confidence to fight back.
If you would like to join the campaign, fill out the form here. If you would like to get involved with the campaign, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could, for instance, help host a local meeting of the campaign, organise a debate at your trade union branch or help distribute campaign leaflets.
