If you think all the big political parties are the same - you're right! The bosses have got three parties - isn't it about time we had one of our own?

The Campaign for a New Workers Party in Coventry and Warwickshire has organised a Public Meeting broadly on the theme of ‘Campaigning to Save our NHS’. The meeting takes place on Saturday November 18th, 12 – 2pm, at Coventry Motor Museum. Cllr Dave Nellist (Leader of the Socialist Group on Coventry City Council) is in the chair. Speakers include:
Dr Jackie Grunsell (Huddersfield Save Our NHS councillor)
Campaigners from Warwick, Nuneaton and Coventry’s Save Our Hospitals Campaign
Llengela lloe (Coventry Refugee Centre)
Speaker from the Dr Raj Mattu Campaign
There will also be a speaker from Unison (NHS) regarding the Single Status dispute, and a speaker from the British Pensioners Trade Union Action Association
The Campaign for a New Workers’ Party was launched locally in May this year. An ad-hoc committee was elected which has now met four times and has organised this Public Meeting. “This gives us a chance to link together health campaigners with those who feel there is a need for a new left wing party to work towards measures that would improve health care through sufficient public funding. Jackie Grunsell showed in Huddersfield in May how a campaign against cuts and privatisation in the NHS can be successful, and we want to build on this”, CNWP national chair Dave Nellist said today.
National CNWP Press Officer Pete McLaren, who lives in Warwickshire, added that there was a real impetus to fill the vacuum to the left of Labour. “This public meeting on Saturday is part of the process of building a new workers’ party. We believe it is time for a change from the establishment politics promoted by the Tories, Labour and the Lib Dems. We will challenge the present right wing consensus through campaigning and by mounting a serious challenge in the 2007 Council Elections”, Pete McLaren concluded.
