Your Momentum release plan to build on left electoral successes

LABOUR Party Momentum activists launched a new plan today to build on past left electoral successes.

The group, which include local role holders and current members of its national co-ordinating group (NCG), launched the Your Momentum: A plan to build left power campaign for the upcoming Momentum NCG elections.

The group, which is supported by the current NCG members, say they want to build on the organising successes and democratic reforms that Momentum has achieved in the last two years. 

The group says that they have been encouraged by recent achievements, such as helping to elect over 100 socialist councillors in May, growing the Momentum Councillors’ Network and the launch of a community wealth building toolkit which will support councillors to pursue a similar agenda to Preston’s socialist council. 

They say that a major priority will be to help more of their supporters to win selection as parliamentary candidates for the next general election.

Momentum claims that it already has locally backed candidates in place and campaigns ready to launch in a number of target seats. 

The group also plan to deepen collaboration with elected representatives, including the Socialist Campaign Group and in trade unions. 

Momentum NCG and Labour national executive committee member Mish Rahman said: “In just two years we have strengthened our internal organisation and democracy. We have enlisted, trained and educated a new layer of activists, plugged financial holes, and facilitated members to rewrite Momentum’s constitution to prepare our organisation for the years to come.”

Hammersmith, Kensington, Fulham and Chelsea Momentum co-chair Imogen Tranchell said Momentum had secured significant victories over the last few years that “we want Momentum to build on over the next two years.”

Momentum was set up in the aftermath of Jeremy Corbyn being elected as leader of the Labour Party in 2015.
