TUC Congress

The TUC Congress meets as usual in the second week of September.

This year there is one motion to consider fully and carefully and only one.

This is the motion from the RMT calling for a referendum on European Union membership.

Naturally the motion has been put to the end and attempts will be made to sideline it.

It will cause confusion amongst the left, the right and Labour affiliates.

Yet without it being fully understood and embraced the lofty aspirations of all the other motions are impossible to achieve.

With Britain’s political system and economy in the straitjacket of the EU, which is on an anti-worker anti-union binge throughout the continent, there is no hope for social progress.

The trade unions should restore their role in challenging capitalist power and lead the way in calling for a democratic expression of the popular hostility to the EU that has never been permitted to speak out.

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
