2014 Socialist Party National Conference

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

The Socialist Party will hold its 2014 National Conference in the Melbourne CBD on July 11, 12 & 13.

The National Conference is the highest decision making body of the party and the most important meeting we hold all year. The conference is open to all financial members as well as invited guests.

Over the course of the weekend we will discuss world relations and the economy, imperialist tensions in the region and the Australian and New Zealand political situation. We will also hear a special report about the work of our sister section in the US.

Speakers will include Kevin McLoughlin, General Secretary of the Socialist Party in Ireland, and guests from the CWI in New Zealand. We will also discuss building the Socialist Party in 2014 and elect a new National Committee.

On the evening of Saturday July 12 we will hold a launch party for our Victorian State election campaign in the seat of Richmond. This will be a public event open to all supporters.

Members that have questions about costs, accommodation, resolutions or childcare arrangements should contact their Branch Secretary or the National Office on 0396399111. More information will be sent to members in the coming weeks.


The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare many of the problems with capitalism. The Socialist strives to explain the systemic causes of this crisis, and reports about the issues that are important to working people. We also help to organise struggles against the powers that be.

We don’t receive a cent from big business or governments. Our work is fully funded by our supporters. Even if half the people who read our website every month donated a few dollars each we would raise thousands to help our work!

We need organisations of struggle now more than ever, so if you support what we do please consider making a donation.

One-off or regular donations can be made securely HERE.
