New Name, Same Struggle

The following motion has been passed by the members of the Socialist Caucus of Maine:

“To dissolve the Socialist Caucus of Maine through the following steps:
“1. The Treasurer shall offer individual refunds of dues already paid, making clear to any member who elects not to accept the refund that the funds shall be retained as a Local Organizing Fund by the Socialist Party of Southern Maine (local of the SPUSA in formation);
“2. The website mainesocialists.org, e-mail address mainesocialists@gmail.com, and the Twitter account @mainesocialists shall pass to the custody of the Socialist Party of Southern Maine;
“3. The name ‘Socialist Caucus,’ along with the Facebook page under that name, shall be offered for the use of those former members of the Socialist Caucus who wish to continue attempting to reform the Maine Green Independent Party and the Green Party of the United States;
“4. Each socialist organization represented in the Socialist Caucus of Maine (SPUSA, Socialist Alternative, ISO, and organized socialists in the MGIP adopting the name ‘Socialist Caucus’) shall be invited to select one representative to serve on an ongoing ‘Socialist Coordinating Committee’ with the purpose of organizing joint action in areas of principled agreement.
“5. The text of this motion shall be posted in full on the website mainesocialists.org.”

The Socialist Party of Southern Maine will soon be applying to the SPUSA for official recognition as a local. Please watch this site for further details.
