Event: After Corbyn’s victory: what next for social movements?

Join us, Global Justice Now, Fuel Poverty Action and Compass in Brighton on the 27 September

September 15, 2015 · 1 min read

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!

Sunday 27 September 6.30-8.30pm

BMECP Centre, 10a Fleet Street, Brighton, BN1 4ZE

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)
