Jeremy Corbyn’s victory as Labour Party leader has blown politics in this country wide open. A huge space has opened up on the left that needs to be claimed.
How do we claim the space? Should radical campaigners & activists be joining the Labour Party? Or is it far too late to re-imagine Labour as anything else than a 20th century top-down, disempowering machine?
What kind of autonomous movement could be organised which also welcomed members of the Green Party, the SNP and Plaid and has close ties with grassroots trade unionism and activism? Come to our un-official Labour Party conference fringe event to find out!
Speakers: Clive Lewis (Labour MP) Neal Lawson (Chair of Compass) Ewa Jasiewicz (Fuel Poverty Action) Nick Dearden (Global Justice Now) & a Green Party representative has been invited.
Chair: Hilary Wainwright (Red Pepper)
