The left-Labour website The Clarion is promoting a statement put out by a wide range of left-wing activists to condemn the increasingly reactionary, vicious and out-of-control group of Stalinist-nationalists organised around the Red London Facebook page.
The statement explains why the left needs to “strongly oppose the politics of Red London… and the wider culture of lying and harassment it has promoted and contributed to, poisoning the environment of the left”. It calls for “a democratic left and labour movement in which differences, even sharp ones, are debated honestly and in a comradely way, not responded to with slander and abuse.”
Initial signatories include Lewisham Deptford CLP chair Rebecca Lawrence, Momentum NCG member Yannis Gourtsoyannis, Unite 1/4060699 chair and socialist blogger Andrew Coates, and trans rights activist Natacha Kennedy. Read the statement and add your name.
