The renationalisation of Royal Mail and telecoms was a hot topic at the recent conference of the Communication Workers Union. Labour4Clause4 were present with a fringe meeting, supporting the demand for public ownership and democratic control.
Our economy is dominated by around 150 giant companies and firms. Through their hands, the majority of society's resources pass. As it stands, they control production. It is time we take back control.
The NHS is in crisis, starved of the resources it desperately needs. The major pharmaceutical companies, however, are laughing all the way to the bank, making massive profits off over-priced drugs.
Launched earlier this year, the Labour4Clause4 campaign has already begun to gather momentum. Thanks to the centenary anniversary of Clause 4 this week, the campaign has even made it into the mainstream media! Now help us achieve our goal of restoring Clause 4 and commiting Labour to socialist policies.
Today, 27th February, marks the centenary of the adoption of Clause 4 into the Labour Party constitution. 100 years on, it is time to put a nail into the coffin of Blairism, privatisation, and capitalism and restore Labour's commitment to socialism.
Labour4Clause4 campaign co-ordinator, Rob Sewell, explains why we need to restore Clause4 and Labour's commitment to socialism. The capitalist system has failed. We must be bold and demand an alternative based on needs, not profits.
