South East Asia and China branch
Branch meetings: last Wednesday of the month
We have maintained good contact with members of the Australian Labour Party at the time of the Australian Federal Elections. In return the Australian comrades helped us out with leafleting at the time of the UK General Election in 2019.
To expand our knowledge of the region we have had guest speakers on the political situations in Malaysia and Vietnam. We also had in-house speakers on the use of Zoom video conferencing and developing a social media strategy.
We had a most interesting discussion on the nature of sex work with a speaker from the Empower Foundation. This was sparked by a resolution on the topic to the LI General Committee. We in turn framed an additional resolution calling for an All Members Meeting on the subject. More recently the branch submitted a successful motion on the Arms Trade which has been sent to the NEC.
