Anger at south east Kent Momentum meeting

  (Click to enlarge)

Seth Cruse, East Kent Socialist Party

There was real anger from the 14 people who attended the south east Kent Momentum annual general meeting (AGM) on 14 January, at the change in the Momentum constitution that threatens the democracy of the movement (see pages 2-3).

After the usual AGM business, including the election of officers, a discussion took place regarding the change in constitution and what many see as an abuse of power recently orchestrated by Momentum chair Jon Lansman. The attendees agreed to produce a 'mission statement' for the group and a declaration strongly opposing the steering group's decision.

South east Kent Momentum wishes to continue with the openness and diversity of previous meetings, that includes the support of socialists, community activists and trade unionists, and encourages the continuation of the campaigns the group has generated around local and national issues.

Supporters want the 'new kind of politics' that originally inspired them to become active in their community, and to work with people and groups together to continue the support for socialism and Jeremy Corbyn.
