The Right2 Change road show.

Right2Change is the political initiative created by the five (now six) trade unions who broke with the Labour Party to take part in the Right2Water anti-water charges movement.

Its leading lights include Brendon Ogle of UNITE , John Douglas, President of ICTU and General Secretary of Mandate and Dave Gibney, also of Mandate.

Having organised two conferences earlier in the year to draw up a statement of basic principles which they would expect a progressive government of Ireland to adhere to, Right2 Change are taking those principles on the road to be discussed at a series of public meetings round the country.

It is possible this may lead to Right2Change endorsing progressive and radical election candidates who sign up to these principles.

Socialist Worker welcomes this development and urges its readers to attend these meetings and take part in the ongoing discussion.

We would particularly want to advocate at these meetings solidarity with the Jobstown 27, Crumlin 13, and all victims of political policing, a voter registration drive in working class areas and the holding of another day of mass Right2Water demonstrations when the Election is called to put the water charges issue centre stage in the election campaign.
