Comrade Party Secretary Adam Camillus von Friedeck and Comrade Sôgmô Gaius Soergel Publicola have unveiled the logo for this year’s Party Congress for the Citizens’ Party of Sandus. The Party will meet under the slogan « reïmagining socialist labour & a new internationalism » that also presents a synthesised look at the congress’s agenda. This year’s Party Congress will occur on the National Day of Socialism (7 November), an auspicious date.
Party Congresses normally occur on a Saturday close to the National Day of Socialism, and only the very first Party Congress occurred on the National Day of Socialism back in 2012.
The agenda, which has yet to be formally published, will cover three topics:
- Economic Reforms to Coöperatives & Working on the Common Economy
- Party Organisation and the Introduction of Party Discipline
- The Borean Community and other Anti-Fascist International Efforts
There will also be a change of venue as the Party Congress moves from online chat rooms to a voice-chat hybrid either on Zoom or Discord.
It is unclear at this time whether international participants will be welcome to observe or take part in the proceedings, but at the very least a “conference” component (much like the 2013 Party Conference) will take place. Invitations will be extended to close Sandum friends and allies, as well as to left-wing micronations and micronational leftist parties generally.
The Party’s annual congresses are some of the most productive and, like the Armilustrium, most festive occasions in our country. In 2019, the Sôgmô held a dinner with fellow workers where það works that featured “socialist carolling”—singing traditional and contemporary labour hymns, chants, marches, and anthems. While present circumstances forbid such a dinner, það has expressed a desire to have a virtual “movie night” before and/or after the Party Congress.
We will announce more updates as they occur.
