Compass relaunches as multi party group
The Welsh convener of the Left wing campaign group Compass has pointer me to the relaunch this week as a multi party group for the centre left,
Compass is is a values based British political pressure group that is allied with the progressive left. Although it has strong links with the British Labour party but also works alongside other political organisations that share its desire to build a good society Including Plaid Cymru..
Compass commits itself to helping shape a fairer Britain, where ‘democracy is deepened at every level of the state, our workplaces and communities; where the sustainability of the planet is made an urgent priority’ and where ‘the market is made to work as a servant of society.
Some Nationalist may feel that associating with a group dominated by members who may not share the desire for an Independent Wales but if we are to seek Independence then we need to show the people of Wales an alternative to our present system and we must reach out to those outside Wales who share a progressive left agenda.
Certainly we in Wales have an opportunity to reach those outside Wales and find allies against the increasing attack ob the weakest members of our society.

The far left have always managed to divide itself it into fractions. Compass may be a unifying force for progressive parties as the decades of austerity provide the right to destroy much of what we value like the NHS and the rest of the welfare state.
Have a look at their webpage and judge for yourself it will be worthwhile joining the facebook page here
