As an aid to discussion among independents in the lead up the ULA conference on 4th February here are some articles on the ULA from independent activists associated with CIL (the – perhaps finally defunct? – Campaign for an Independent Left):

  1. Eoin Ó Broin of Sinn Féin has written a very good review of the last 12 months :

    2011 – An Interesting Year for the Left

    http://www.irishleftreview.org/2011/12/31/2011-interesting-year-left/#more-5911

    He writes this about the United Left Alliance :

    “For the ULA the challenge is to decide whether it is a genuinely broad based party of the anti-capitalist left and to increase its electoral strength on this basis or to remain an electoral coalition of the SWP and SP and as such a marginal force in the politics of the state.”

    That is very fair comment.
