New club forms in Michigan

 

Battle Creek, MI – with a population of just 50,000 – is home to a brand new CPUSA club still in the process of forming. Its core members are building an organization to not only promote socialism and communism, but also to tap into the rich heritage of racial and economic justice that run through the city and its history.
The club plans to build a new leftist political base to launch progressive campaigns and turn the electoral tide for local races and issues while at the same time spreading education and community to counter traditional capitalism.
As the only active CPUSA organization in the state outside Detroit, anyone from the region is welcome.

Let us know how and what you are doing. Our recently concluded party building conference put all of us on the road to build. How that happens will be special or unique to each club or area. Sharing helps.

MaStars – Mothers Against Stuff That Ain’t Right (anti-capitalism-ists), based in Bessemer, MI… say “congratulations” as well! You can find MANY MaStar blog-posts and thus… it’s objectives… by doing a web search for “abolish economies”.

From the above cpusa story…
“Its core members are building an organization to not only promote socialism and communism, but also to tap into the rich heritage of racial and economic justice that run through the city and its history.”

What a great objective! It sounds very flexible, too, thus avoiding in-fighting and factions.

Decision-By-Committee is slow, and requires educating everyone ABOUT the issue, and listening and listening and listening. But still, it’s the most inclusive and fair decision-making OF ANY. Keep the rules “loose” in the club, eh? The “comm” part of the word “committee” (and communication, and communion, and community)… is our special keyword, and a great guiding light for the club. “Comm”. I like it!
