Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution

4th September 2017

This document, eight pages long contains a number of proposals for developing and growing the Workers’ Party. It notes that:

…the Greater Dublin area has a population of over 1 million representing approximately one third of the population of the State. It has the greatest concentration of PAYE workers, unemployed, students and working class families on the island and inevitably has the greatest potential for the development of the WP. Already we have three Dáil Deputies elected in the Region, six City Councillors and three County Councillors (with one County Councillor being a member of Dun Laoghaire Borough Council). In recent Dáil elections we secured 36,828 votes, or 7.5% of the total valid poll.

The document considers a range of areas, from branch officerships (‘all officerships must be filled and all work functions undertaken as efficiently as possible’), Constituency Councils, Workers’ party Youth, Women Officers, Party Finance and Administration, Recruitment and the Irish People publication.

It also notes the centrality of Party Campaigns as ‘the key to expansion and growth’.
