Resolutions adopted at the Socialist Alliance National Council meeting, October 6-7, 2012

The 8th national conference of the Socialist Alliance in Australia decided to take a draft document entitled “Towards a socialist Australia” through a nation-wide public discussion and consultation process to promote a wide discussion about socialism in the 21st century.

This redrafted Socialist Alliance perspectives resolution has been prepared for discussion in the lead up to its 8th national conference by a drafting subcommittee on the National Executive after taking into account various suggestions in Alliance Voices and from discussion in the National Executive Secretariat. Note: As at previous conferences, delegates will be asked to vote on the resolutions not the rationale.
