Poverty,democracy in the Labour Party -all welcome to first meeting in 3 months!

The embargo created by the national Labour Party officers on local parties meeting is now being lifted. Accordingly, the first general committee of the Hastings and Rye LP for some 3 months will take place, as previously advised, on Tuesday 27 September at 7.30 in the Sussex room of the White Rock Theatre, opposite the pier. (This is a wheelchair accessible venue.)

Amongst other things it will discuss a motion calling for a poverty commission for Hastings and also a motion criticising ‘the anti-democratic actions that have disfigured the LP leadership election’ including restrictions on new members voting.

All members of the local party are warmly invited to the meeting but only delegates can vote.
