Just what NZ needs, a new Marxist paper.
The Workers Charter Movement has just launched their new paper, “Workers Charter”. Clearly modelled on the Australian Marxist-Leninist paper, Green Left Weekly, the new paper hopes to help build a new socialist movement in this country.
The Workers Charter Movement is a front for the Socialist Workers Organisation, Matt McCarten’s UNITE union, the late Bill Andersen’s, Socialist Party of Aotearoa, Global Peace and Justice Auckland and a few other Marxist sectlets. Also involved are some elements of the Greens, the Alliance Party and the Maori Party.
Editor, John Minto, writes in the first edition that the paper and the Workers Charter movement aim to “provide a rallying point for working New Zealanders not just in relation to wages and conditions of work but to all aspects of life for workers and their families”.
Don’t that warm your cold capitalist heart?
