NEPD home



The first aim of the NEPD is to campaign for a conference of trade unionists, social, community, youth, other organisations and individuals to decide upon alternative political representation.

So far almost 500 individuals and a number of organisations are supporting it, including: the Movement for a Socialist Future, the Muslim Parliament, branches of the T&GWU and UCATT, plus leading members of the Fire Brigades Union and Amicus.

Provisional agenda:

1. The right to vote – giving political power to the people

  • Extending democracy beyond Parliament
  • Local People’s Assemblies with real power
  • Reshaping the police and justice system
  • Ending privileges for the few

2. Democratising ownership and control

  • Liberating economic and financial resources
  • Production for need not profit
  • Safeguarding nature and the environment
  • Using science/technology for the common good

3. Building international links

  • Linking with movements in other countries
  • Alternatives to the European Union of big business
  • How the rich countries can support developing nations

4. Getting there

  • How we achieve our aims
  • Alternatives to protest and pressure
  • How we organise ourselves
