Socialist Resistance welcomes this initiative. It facilitates additional left candidates in the general election and contributes to the overall intervention of the left in the election. We will request to become one of its participating organisations as we did with no2eu.
We urge the organisers, therefore, to go down the road of broader participation as far as its organisational structure is concerned. We urge them to issue an open invitation to all the organisations of the left, and of the trade unions and social movements, to become participating organisations with full rights to participate at all levels.
For the campaign to succeed maximum participation will be needed. That means full open and transparent democracy should be built into the campaigns both nationally and locally.
The Socialist Resistance executive committee published this statement on 11 November 2009.
