Build Labour fight against Brexit

Labour and Brexit

The Another Europe is Possible conference in December voted to set up a new, freestanding Labour anti¬Brexit initiative.

This campaign, “Stop Brexit – Labour for a Socialist Europe”, set up a steering group at the conference and will be holding its first public event, an organising summit, on 12 January (3-5pm, at SOAS in London). Activists in local Labour Parties and Left Against Brexit-type groups are also preparing to hold local meetings to support the initiative in a number of cities. The constituency of Labour members and supporters who are left¬wing and antiBrexit is vast but largely unorganised.

Now is the time to help them get organised. If we don’t we will not only miss an opportunity but open the way to both a right¬wing nationalist reaction in society and a right¬wing reaction in the Labour Party. Instead of being radicalised to pass beyond its limitation, the entire post¬2015 left project will be in extreme danger.
