21st CPA State Conference

The CPA held it's 21st State Conference at the Semaphore Workers Club this afternoon. The Conference was well attended by members of the Party and also by guests at the after Conference event. Nominations to the State Committee were voted on resulting in the election of eight members, making the new committee the largest and most representative of all SA branches for some time.

The Conference also considered and accepted a range of political resolutions which can be viewed in detail by downloading the document in the box widget to your right.

It is customary for a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party to attend Party State Conferences and this year we were fortunate enough to host CC Member Rob Gowland. Rob's main contribution was a report on the International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties, which, until this year, has been regularly hosted by the KKE (Communist Party of Greece) in Athens. This year the meeting was moved to Minsk, Belarus, one of a growing number of countries in the former Soviet Union which has reverted to a socialist economy.

Rob's report was supported by a visual presentation which will be available for download soon.

Other guest speakers included Martin O'Malley from the CFMEU, Jamie Newlyn from the MUA and local Aboriginal activist John Hartley who spoke about the upcoming National Convergence on Parliament House in Canberra to protest against the continuation of the intervention into Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory.

Thanks to all guests of the CPA for joining us in celebrating our 21st!
