Dumfries and South West Scotland Morning Star Readers & Supporters Group
Dumfries and South West Scotland Morning Star Readers & Supporters Group is affiliated to the Communist Party of Britain.
The group had been established in February 2014 and had now secured a Saturday readership. In at least one case these casual readers had been converted into regular daily readers. The group had produced promotional leaflets, held meetings on topical issues such as the Easter Rising and developed links with the Trades Union Council and the Film Centre. They had won both the local RMT branch and Unison to take out shares and taken the paper on to EIS and RMT picket lines.
Recently they had secured the very speedy exit from Dumfries of the Conservative Scottish Secretary David Mundell by surrounding him with Morning Star sellers. Their proudest claim, however, was that of raising £1002 since their formation for the Star’s Fighting Fund.
