Campaign for Labour Policies August 23, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, The Left.
I am writing to you today on behalf of the Campaign for Labour Policies.
We are a campaign of grassroots Labour party members who have come together to mobilise Labour members and supporters around an alternative political programme to the one now being pursued by government.
We are determined to fight for a political party which serves to meet the needs of ordinary people. We are deeply concerned about the erosion of social and economic rights that is taking place in Ireland, as austerity continues to wipe clear hard fought for gains. We do not believes that austerity is working, or that austerity politics, which have failed up to now, will somehow start working soon.
We are launching the Campaign for Labour Policies at a meeting for Labour members on the Saturday September 15th at 2pm in Wynns Hotel, Middle Abbey Street, Dublin. Our speakers will be Mags O’Brien and Michael Taft. We hope to mobilise as many Labour members and supporters around policies which prioritise the needs of society. Our campaign will focus on key questions such as job creation, income inequality, the protection of services and dealing with the onerous bank debt.
The Campaign is open to all Labour members, and we are made up of ordinary labour members of all generations. As Labour members, we all fought hard to convince our communities to elect Labour TDs. The Campaign for Labour Polices is determined that Labour members will have a voice, and become a voice for change in a radical campaign for labour, left policies.
We hope to see you on the 15th.
