Resignation from the Red Eureka Tendency (RET)

Urgent appeal. Socialist Alliance needs to submit an updated list of over 1500 members to the Australian Electoral Commission to maintain our electoral registration and appear on the ballot at the next federal election. We're asking all existing members and those interested in joining to confirm your willingness to support our electoral enrolment by filling in this form.

When I came up with the idea of the Red Eureka Tendency (RET), it was to bring back Marxism to Socialist Alliance.

The new classes on Marxism are fantastic.

I henceforth resign from the Red Eureka Tendency and urge Adam Baker to dissolve the tendency.

I find myself in strong disagreement with Adam Baker on his notion of China that it is a deformed workers state, when it is in reality a capitalist country that is against the workers, does not allow unions, and does not give workers health care. The Communist Party of China is sacking Maoists from their party. 

Adam is going against the ideology of the DSP, which I swear to uphold and defend, and which has continued in the Socialist Alliance. We see the excellent articles in GLW on Cuba and China, together with the article about Bush that mentions Ho Chi Minh. 

There is still a lot more work to do, as VI Lenin said, the true socialist is non-sectarian. The question is how to unite the working class.
