Open Politics

Democracy is for everyone: all our members matter. We want Labour to debate openly and disagree well, to promote voices from under-represented backgrounds. 

We call on Labour to implement fair and effective disciplinary processes to properly deal with all kinds of prejudice and harassment in our party. 

Factions are a normal part of political organising, but we stand against narrow sectarianism, centralism and ‘bad faith’ behaviour as barriers to democracy, open debate and the durability of the Labour Party. 

In our actions we show people that there are better ways for Labour members to change minds and for our party to succeed.
