LABOUR deputy leadership hopeful Richard Burgon pledged last night to create a Tony Benn School of Political Education if elected.
In a speech at Ruskin House, the shadow justice secretary called a “revolution in political education” and a boost in grassroots organising.
“Labour needs to be winning over millions more people to our causes and policies,” he said.
“To do that we need to be building widespread support for alternative ideas.”
The school would provide free online courses, podcasts, video lectures and reading materials to Labour members in feminist, anti-racist, anti-colonial, trade union and Labour Party history.
Mr Burgon’s five-point plan also includes Labour’s annual conference choosing a global issue each year on which 100 CLPs would twin with communities in places such as Palestine and Kashmir to show solidarity.
Other proposals include a strikers’ solidarity tour, a push for every Labour member to be a member of a trade union and promoting political education through cultural events.
