(January 1976)

From Militant, No. 339, 21 January 1976, p. 10.
Transcribed by Iain Dalton.
Marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for the Encyclopaedia of Trotskyism On-Line (ETOL).

A meeting of the Bradford Tribune Group unanimously passed a resolution condemning the attacks on supporters of the Militant by the Tory press and the right wing of the party.

The meeting, which was attended by 40 people, also criticised the actions of the National Union of Labour Organisers in boycotting Andy Bevan and called upon them to substitute these McCarthyite tactics with open and democratic discussion in the party of their differences.

In a subsequent resolution unanimous support was again given to a call for the nationalisation of the 200 monopolies and banks and finance houses, as the only solution to the present crisis and cuts in working class living standards.

An appeal was also made to the delegates to support letters which have been sent out to several trade union branches and Labour Party members’ branches in the area explaining Militant’s position and asking the branches to invite a speaker along to explain what Militant stands for. Several branches promised to do this.
