At the party congresses of Socialist People’s Party the last few years, there have been guests from other countries. Last year a woman from the Tibetan government-in-exile gave a speech, about the Beijing government’s oppression of Tibet.
This year, a person from the Movimiento al Socialismo, MAS, of Bolivia, gave a speech (In Spanish, so a Danish translation could be read on the projector) about the changes happening in Bolivia at the advent of the presidency of Evo Morales.
Quite fascinating to listen to!
Hopefully it will be available for download later on!
Here at the party congress of Socialist People’s Party, for the last several hours there’s been a debate about various issues. It’s quite beautiful to see that a political party is “broad” enough to contain various opinions. Rather than having a party “lead from the top” like a shepherd herding sheep (Like certain parties on the far-right of Danish politics seem to have).
Here at the party congress of Socialist People’s Party, chairman Villy Søvndal is speaking to the delegates, he started his speech off in a fairly kick-ass way, I think he might have taken a page out of Barack Obama’s book.
Today, delegates of from all over the country, is gathering in Århus for the annual party congress. Yesterday, I got a note on Facebook from party chairman Villy Søvndal, that regular members and the general public was welcome to attend as well. So that’s what I decided to do. Given that going to Århus is only a 40 minute trip by train, and that the party congress is held within walking distance of the train station, I thought it would be fascinating to attend.
In about 10 minutes, chairman Villy Søvndal will adress the delegates in a speech. Which I will be experiencing first hand, as I was invited to sit in with the Silkeborg delegates by our local chairman. A great honor indeed!
