Bangor Branch Launch

I'm going to be publishing daily (or near enough) for the next week. Have plenty of material from when i didn't publish stuff for a while (both things i've written and reports of what myself and sp here were up to).

Sunday 27th January saw the launch meeting of the Bangor Branch of the Socialist Party. Socialist Party Wales Secretary, Alec Thraves introduced a discussion on the important role a branch in Bangor can and will play in introducing people to the ideas of socialism. In Bangor, Socialist Party members already there have had a crucial intervention at Bangor University, setting up a campaigning Socialist Students society as an alternative to the inaction of the local student union leadership. The role of organisers in helping to develop the work of the branch was also discussed, particularly the importance of finance and paper organisers in helping us raise the funds necessary to help get our ideas across to workers and students in Bangor.

Iain Dalton, Bangor Branch Secretary
