Motion to Momentum national steering committee on scandal in Brighton Labour Party

I am submitting the following motion to the Momentum national Steering Committee meeting on Wednesday 2 November. For more information on what is happening in Brighton, see here.

Feel free to get in touch: jillmountford@rocketmail.com

“The attack on democracy and members’ rights in Brighton Labour Party is a serious test case. The movement must resist vigorously, giving full and active solidarity to the Brighton comrades.

“We therefore agree to issue a public statement and press release, condemning what has happened in Brighton, calling for a storm of protest throughout the party and labour movement, and urging the party leadership to make a fuss about this. Momentum nationally will promote this issue on social media, and work to get Brighton Momentum/Labour left speakers at Momentum and Labour meetings throughout the country.

“We will support and promote the Brighton Momentum protest meeting on 9 November. Representatives of the Steering Committee (including any member who wants to) will urgently meet representatives of Brighton Momentum to discuss campaigning on this and how else we can help them.”
