The United Socialist Movement of the Americas

A Great initiative started as a Facebook group and now branching out into the "Real World". Perhaps some of our American comrades can keep us up to date on this organisation.

SMA Objectives and Purposes:

1. To establish a local chapter in every community across the Americas;
2. To promote socialist values and ideas; and to
3. Create a united socialist movement in the 35 countries of the Americas.

More Specifically, Chapters Will:
1. Promote the reduction of social & economic inequalities within and between nations;
2. Help raise the awareness of the destructive forces of capitalism upon nature;
3. Monitor the progress made by socialist ideas in their community, in the Americas and beyond;
4. Act as an “honest broker” between various groups working in a spirit of unity to support worthwhile campaigns; and
5. Provide members with educational and leadership tools for socialist activists.

Long Range Goal:

To move our countries from the current capital set of social relations towards a pluralistic socialist society.

William Richardson here. Hey thanks for the mention on your blog. Right now we're still laying the foundations for our organization/movement. Me personally i'm starting a chapter in Buffalo, NY, USA and it seems to be much interest here. I hope the struggle is going good on your end and maybe we can make some links sooner or later. In Solidarity.

Plot:

We now have 8 chapters in five countries (Canada, US, Venezuela, Colombia, and Trinidad and Tobago).

I have a few friends in the Scottish Socialist Party. We could build some links between USMA and The SSP.
