Communist League announces candidates
August 11, 2005
Communist League announces candidates for 2005 general election.
The Communist League will be campaigning in the 2005 general election to present a working-class alternative to Labour, National, and the other parties of capitalism that defend the interests of the ruling rich.
The League will stand Patrick Brown in the south Auckland electorate of Maungakiekie and Annalucia Vermunt in Christchurch Central.
The candidates and their supporters will champion union fights and other struggles by working people and oppose imperialism and its wars. They will put forward a platform to defend the interests of workers and farmers worldwide in face of the unrelenting offensive by the employers.
The socialist campaign will explain the need to build a revolutionary movement that will lead a fight by working people and their allies to take power out of the hands of the billionaire ruling class and establish a workers and farmers government, and join the worldwide struggle for socialism.

A meeting to launch the Communist League election campaign in Auckland will be held at the Militant Labour Forum, 7 Mason Ave, Otahuhu, at 7pm, this Saturday, August 13.
The campaign launch will feature Patrick Brown, Communist League candidate for Maungakiekie, followed by a fundraising social and light supper.
