[Note that WordPress is censoring me for the first time – I sent out a similar post to this one that included the full text of the newsletter. That post doesn’t appear from the main www.thatcheroftheleft.wordpress.com page and going directly to that post (at https://thatcheroftheleft.wordpress.com/?p=770) sometimes produces an error message and sometimes displays the post! I suppose this goes to show something I knew already, that revolutionary change can’t take place just on the internet. Sometimes you need to interact in the real world – and going to TUC conference to hand out paper copies of the newsletter and talking to people is part of that! This suggests I’m doing something dangerous to the powers that be (the ruling class, i.e. big business) though and I strongly recommend reading it by going to www.revolutionaryplatformofleftunity.org/news/6.html.]
To read the latest edition (number 6) of Revolutionary Platform News, mainly intended for distribution at the TUC conference that I started distributing copies at yesterday (Bournemouth, 8-11 September): www.facebook.com/events/210223049102033 (but I have also handed it out at the Merseyside People’s Assembly on Thursday evening and the national coordinating group of Left Unity to which I was a delegate for the first time on Saturday), go to www.revolutionaryplatformofleftunity.org/news/6.html.
The newsletter has headlines “TUC: Serious coordinated strike action against cuts now! Don’t pay the national debt to bondholders after a revolution!”, “Cameron’s fracking defence demolished (economic and environmental arguments)” and “Call for a Revolutionary Platform of Left Unity”, plus details for the national demonstration (primarily against cuts and to save the National Health Service) at the Tory Party conference in Manchester on Sunday 29 September.
There are links at the bottom of that page to PDF/DOC files containing black-and-white/colour versions of the newsletter as two sides of A4, which you can download for printing and possibly photocopying and distribution (but I have nearly 1,000 copies in black-and-white with me in Bournemouth – cheapestprintonline.co.uk failed to post colour versions to me despite the claims on guaranteed next day delivery on their website – beware of them if you are submitting something too radical!).
