The mirage of the "internationalist no"

Author: 

Martin Thomas

From Solidarity 3/12, 12 September 2002


Even if a strong internationalist campaign for "no" were theoretically possible, it certainly will not happen.

At the Socialist Alliance National Council on 7 September, John Rees of the SWP said flatly and clearly that he wanted a "no" campaign run in unity with "other left forces", including, by name, the Communist Party of Britain. The Communist Party has a long, long tradition of British nationalism - on Europe especially.

Even if a strong internationalist campaign for "no" to the EU were theoretically possible, it certainly will not happen.
