Socialists in the Labour Party have suffered recent defeats, but we are not defeated. This is the time to unify and build around our shared socialist principles, the policies in our 2017 & 2019 manifestos, full democracy, due process and natural justice in the party.
We urgently need a way of bringing together the wide range of new and existing organisations in our movement – groups organising in communities and workplaces, unions, constituency-based left groups, Covid-19 mutual aid networks. Not yet another organisation with leadership aspirations.
Instead we need something new and different – a grassroots umbrella network, run democratically by its supporting bodies, to coordinate our actions and our demands, to support and act in solidarity with each other.
Tonight at 7.30pm. The Socialist Campaign Group Rally is always one of the biggest & most impassioned events of Labour conference. It's the one with queues all around the block. This time it's online, but it will be inspiring nevertheless. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/socialist-campaign-group-rally-tickets-115763402453

“No one should have the right to backtrack & unpick the decisions made at conference. It’s up to us to keep the pressure on our new leadership.” #GrassrootsVoice candidate for the NEC, @MizJama, with an excellent piece on the @dontleave_org website 👉👉👉https://www.dontleaveorganise.org/2020/08/23/labour-must-support-an-end-to-human-rights-violations-in-kashmir-nadia-jama/
Concern for their grouse Moor owning mates far more important that stopping transmission by paying #fullsickpaynow to all workers to allow them to stay off work without starving or risking eviction and poverty. https://twitter.com/AndyBurnhamGM/status/1305488155332743168
How I wish they would give the same attention to the concerns of people who can’t afford to self-isolate as they do to the concerns of the landed gentry. https://twitter.com/paulwaugh/status/1305486443876413440
So the real answer is to increase Statutory Sick Pay. We need #fullsickpaynow
#FullSickPayNow campaign launched on 9 Sept by
@dontleave_org welcomes Angela's demand - all care workers be paid the real living wage.

#GrassrootsVoice candidate for the NEC, Nadia Jama:
“Our Delegate and Trade Union members voted overwhelmingly to support the Kashmiri people at the 2019 Labour Conference. Conference is the only opportunity Labour Party members have to influence our Party’s policies. We cannot allow the Party to fall back into the old ways of conference and members, being ignored as the sovereign body of our policy decision making.
Regardless of who is in charge, members must have a greater – not lesser – influence on policy. No one should have the right to backtrack and unpick the decisions made at conference. It’s up to us to keep the pressure on our new leadership to ensure that what we agree at conference is what we, as a Party, adhere to – a foreign policy of consistent support for human rights, peace and diplomacy.”
