Communist Party growth

The Minnesota/Dakotas District of the Communist Party USA just concluded a meeting involving all Club Chairs and the District leadership.

We made a decision that new members would be helped in building new clubs instead of bringing these new members into existing clubs.

Small clubs of three to fifteen people are serving us well and we concluded that our mass influence would be better served by building more clubs rather than bringing new members into existing clubs.

We have found that clubs of three to five people can easily be built around new member's friends in the communities where they live.

It was pointed out that we need to begin organizing clubs in places where people work and towards these ends we are focusing on two mines on the Iron Range, the St. Paul Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant, Mystic Lake Casino and several smaller manufacturing plants in St. Cloud and Sappi in Cloquet. We now have two members employed at American Crystal Sugar in North Dakota. We now have a club in the Boise plant in International Falls which is the first Communist Party industrial club in many years in our District.

We look forward to working with anyone interested in joining the Communist Party U.S.A. and helping in our rebuilding efforts.

Please contact us if you would like to help us rebuild the Communist Party USA into a fighting working class revolutionary organization struggling for reforms as we fight to get rid of capitalism replacing it with socialism.
