The Red Party held what was intended to be the final conference call on its new Draft Program on Sunday, June 8th. The emphasis here is on ‘intended’ – the scope of discussion and debate was so wide that, while the conference did pass several changes to the Draft Program’s “Immediate Demands” section (the minimum program), a decision was made to extend the discussion period until June 16th. In addition, conference decided to hold a confirmation vote for the “What We Stand For” statement appearing on the back page of every issue of The Red Vine; a framework for that process will be forthcoming soon.
The most recent version of the new Draft Program is attached below; new additions to the immediate demands are in red, bold text. Contributions can be posted in the comments section, the Internal Discussion Board or made in meetings.
