The CPA (M-L) recently created a discussion site for the printing of articles that are relevant to the work of the Party, but not necessarily reflective of a considered Party viewpoint, and for the raising of questions of the Party by members and supporters.
This is a moderated website and not a site for endless and pointless posts.
The most recent article is by respected Australian Marxist historian Humphrey McQueen which responds to a view that talking of an impending crisis of capitalism is “crying wolf”.
The article can be found by following this link to the home page of the discussion site: http://ozcom.ucoz.org/
Members and supporters are asked to read the “How to use this website” post through a link on the top left hand side of the discussion site’s home page.

US imperialism, Israel and the militarisation of India
