Labour Party Build Momentum With New Online Platform
This summer, after years of being told otherwise, several hundred thousand people stood up for change and agreed with Jeremy Corbyn that austerity is a political choice, and not a necessity. 250,000 people agreed with Jeremy's Corbyn's views and want for change, voting him as the Labour party's leader. Jeremy and his Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell wish to turn Labour into 'an anti-austerity party of hope and bold alternatives', and now Labour's conference has given its backing.
Recent events such as this, the Labour Party believe, have shown us how they're positively changing as a political party. Now they wish to show us how they can change the country. Throughout their last campaign, Jeremy spoke about building a social movement to work for a more democratic, equal and decent society.
They've now built a network for the general public to communicate their political views and to help spread the word. The network is called Momentum, and it's purpose is to 'continue the work that the Labour party have begun'. They hope it will be shared within every town, city and village to create a mass movement for change, to make Labour a more democratic party and to bring together individuals and groups within communities and workplaces to campaign and organise on the issues that matter.
