LABOUR activists will debate a campaign of direct action against Sir Keir Starmer’s leadership at an “emergency fightback meeting” tomorrow.
The virtual meeting of the Labour In Exile Network (LIEN) will consider pickets of MPs, marches, and protests outside Labour offices around the country.
LIEN was set up late last year following the suspension of more than 70 local Labour Party officers for allowing discussions of motions criticising the withdrawal of the whip from former leader Jeremy Corbyn.
LIEN’s Norman Thomas said that Sir Keir’s team was using a barrage of dirty tricks to push Labour to the right.
“They are suspending members, paralysing local parties, stifling debate,” he said. “Our only option is to take to the streets.
“The lockdown has enabled the leadership to act in an outrageous, undemocratic manner, [but with restrictions easing on Monday] members will be able at last to protest in public.”
The meeting will also consider the Jerusalem Declaration: an alternative definition of anti-semitism to the one put forward by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
Labour was approached for comment.
