Twenty five people attended a successful Campaign for a New Workers' Party (CNWP) public meeting in Shrewsbury on Thursday 19 March.
The meeting heard Socialist Party councillor and CNWP national chair Dave Nellist put forward the case for a new party for working and young people. He was joined on the platform by local trades council activist Dave Auger (personal capacity) and Jake Moore who highlighted the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign and the importance of political representation for working-class youth.
The meeting decided to convene again in a fortnight's time to discuss the possibilities of standing candidates in future local elections, in an attempt to further build a local and national force for socialist opposition to New Labour and the threat of the right-wing, racist BNP.
