NCP Day at the Centre

Hyon Hak Bong and Alex Kempshall
By New Worker correspondent

 WE CELEBRATED the founding of the New Communist Party (NCP) in the usual way at a reception at the Party Centre in London on 9th July. Friends and comrades, old and new, joined NCP leader Andy Brooks and Party Chair Alex Kempshall in celebrating the anniversary with speeches. food and drink, and a bumper collection that raised over £3,000!
NCP leader Andy Brooks spoke about the long struggle against revisionism and the fight for peace and socialism led by the Party that was established under the leadership of Sid French in July 1977.
Some friends, like our comrades in the RCPB (ML), were absent because they were taking part in the great Durham Miners’ Gala. Others, like Ambassador Hyon Hak Bong from the London embassy of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Dermot Hudson from the UK Korean Friendship Association, paid tribute to the NCP’s consistent solidarity and its staunch support for the communist ideal during the formal part of the proceedings.
Much of our efforts, National Treasurer Daphne Liddle said, revolve around the {New Worker}, which has survived for the past 39 years solely through the dedicated support of our readers. That was shown on the night with a collection that raised £3,111.69 for the fighting fund!
