The Northern District of the Communist Party of Britain covers Cleveland, Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and Cumbria.
Our members - organised in a number of branches - are mainly active in the broad labour and progressive movement, including trade unions, the North East Pensioners' Association and the student movement.
However, we also do our own independent public work - selling the Morning Star, participating in demonstrations with our own flags and banners, leafleting and campaigning in local and general elections.
We contested the Newcastle East and Wallsend constituency in the 1997, 2001 and 2005 general elections. We have a well-stocked mobile bookstall, Clarion Books, and we help staff a Morning Star stall at both the Tyne & Wear May Day and the Durham Miners' Gala.
