by Greg Pason, National Secretary

The Socialist Party had an active 2010, we've gained new members, new locals and had some of our best turnouts at national demonstrations and events.

In January we kicked off the year with local actions to shut down Guantanamo and held our first new National Committee meeting hosted by the SP of Central Virginia in Charlottesville. At that meeting the NC organized a phone conference with Ohio comrades to reorganize a state committee and to help to support the nomination of Dan La Botz for US Senate. The National Committee also approved a new Local Organizing handbook to assist locals in their activist work.

In the spring we held International Women's Day events, with an IWD issue of The Socialist. Later in the month members took part in the Left Forum in NYC (organizing a table and workshops), and we mobilized members for the March 20th DC mobilization for "Troops Out of Iraq and Afghanistan" with magazines and literature.

In April our newly organized Southern Arizona Local was in the street protesting Arizona racist SB 1070. The Southern Arizona local is the first local we've had in Arizona in more than a decade. The National Office shipped material and a banner to support a Arizona local's contingent at the large anti-SB 1070 mobilization.
