Sheffield Labour Left stands in full solidarity with Chris Williamson MP.
Any allegations that Chris is enabling or minimising anti-Semitism are not only unfounded, but part of a hostile and anti-democratic campaign. As Jeremy Corbyn recently said: “Chris Williamson is a very good, very effective Labour MP. He’s a very strong anti-racist campaigner. He is not anti-Semitic.”
Of course, allegations of anti-Semitism should be dealt with, but this should follow due process. Any false and trumped up allegations to score political points against Corbyn and his supporters, however, must also come to an end.
Solidarity with Chris!
Our meeting will discuss Clause Four of the Labour Party’s constitution and what we mean by “public ownership”. We will debate whether the original version of Clause Four that was adopted in February 1918 (and which Tony Blair got rid of) should be restored to the Labour Party’s constitution – or if we need someting more radical.
The meeting will be chaired by Martin Mayer, Chair of Sheffield Labour Left, Secretary of Sheffield Trade Union Council and previously a UNITE delegate to the Labour Party’s NEC. Our two guest speakers are Rob Sewell, Coordinator of the Labour4Clause4 campaign (labour4clause4.com) and a member of Socialist Appeal (www.socialist.net) and Mark Lewis, a member of the Labour Party.
Come along and participate in the debate about one of the essential principles of socialism.
Wednesday February 27, 6.30pm
