October 3, 2014 | It was a fever pitch as the largest-ever Socialist Alternative National Convention met for three days this past Labor Day weekend in Seattle. The National Convention is the highest decision-making body of the organization, convened at least every two years to not only analyze key economic, social, and political developments but to collectively decide how best to build Socialist Alternative and the broader movement.
The convention began with a discussion on international developments introduced by Peter Taaffe, of the Committee for a Workers International (CWI), the grouping of socialist organizations and parties in 40 countries with whom Socialist Alternative stands in political solidarity. We discussed the prolonged structural crisis of capitalism and the chaos and upheaval this is creating around the world. Attention was given to the increasing difficulties being confronted by U.S. imperialism around the world, and especially in the Middle East.
