THOUSANDS of Labour leftwingers are set to gather for a major meeting as Sir Keir Starmer continues to deny the party whip to former leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Saturday’s Labour Assembly Against Austerity online conference will feature contributions from Mr Corbyn and MPs including Diane Abbott, as well as trade unionists, activists and international speakers from the United States, France, Argentina and Ghana.
More than 2,000 people have already registered for the event, which will feature lectures and discussions on “setting out the alternative to the Tories’ misrule and Starmer’s lacklustre opposition.”
The meeting will also demand an end to attacks on democracy within Labour, including the year-long suspension of Mr Corbyn from the parliamentary party.
Helen O’Connor of the People’s Assembly Against Austerity said that the meeting would allow the best organisers across the labour movement to formulate a “co-ordinated strategy to defeat this government.”
Former shadow chancellor John McDonnell, who will be among the keynote speakers on of Saturday, added: “We need to talk through the sort of economy that we want to construct and the socialist economics that will enable us to rise to those challenges.”
