The Labour leadership election is over but the Labour Party machine’s attacks on democracy and on members’s rights continue. Many thousands remain suspended or expelled, with no idea when, how or if their appeals will be heard. Meanwhile local parties including Brighton, Hove and District Labour Party and Wallasey CLP remain suspended.

Broxtowe CLP in Nottingham is working with the Broxtowe, Basildon & District Momentum and other Momentum groups to host a national conference with the Stop the Labour Purge. The conference will bring together activists from CLPs, Momentum groups and other labour movement organisations from around the country, to discuss and organise winning reinstatement for targeted members and challenging the Labour bureaucracy to establish due process, accountability and democracy in our party.

All Labour Party members and supporters who want to stop the purge are welcome, but we are asking organisations to formally support the conference and send representatives.

Workshops to include:

  • Fighting the witch hunt through the unions
  • Sharing stories and making plans
  • Democracy post Chakrabarti – what are we demanding
  • How to transform your CLP – winning democracy through grass roots activity

The conference is supported by people including:
Ronnie Draper, BFAWU general secretary who was suspended and reinstated
Hibaq Jama, suspended Bristol councillor
Mark Sandell, elected chair of suspended Brighton District Labour Party
Pete Radcliff, expelled chair of Broxtowe CLP
Pamela Fitzpatrick, suspended and reinstated Harrow councillor
Allan Challenger, Suspended Member, Manchester Gorton/ Oldham Unison Branch Officer

And organisations and groups

  • Momentum Broxtowe
