11th Congress Appeal

From October 2-5 this year, elected delegates representing Communist Party organisations from all over Australia will gather in Sydney for the 11th National Congress of the Party. There will be an opening on the Friday night to which all Guardian readers, their families and friends are invited (details here).

Over the following three days, delegates will discuss the work of the Party, make any final amendments to and adopt a Political Resolution. In the lead-up to the Congress, Party members have been discussing and submitting amendments to the Political Resolution. Once adopted, the Political Resolution becomes the main political statement of the Party, along with its Program binding on all members for the coming period.

Congress will elect a new Central Committee to lead the work of the Party over the next four years until the 12th National Congress. As the highest body of the Party it has the power to amend the Constitution and Program, and adopt other resolutions as its delegates may determine.

A financial appeal is being launched with this issue of The Guardian to help defray the considerable cost of transport of delegates and accommodation during the Congress. Delegates will be coming from as far away as Perth.

We are appealing to Party members and organisations and all friends and supporters of the Party and The Guardian to help fulfil our $10,000 target as soon as possible.

You may print out this form (no longer available) or write your details on a separate piece of paper and sent by mail. Contributions via credit card can also be phoned in on 02 9699 8844.

All contributions will be acknowledged in The Guardian, with the names of contributors unless requested otherwise.
