Experience counts on the NEC

Take note of the wise words of Labour CND Vice Chair, Christine Shawcroft who is a former member of the Labour Party National Executive. Please suppport the six Grassroots Voice candidates in the ballot for CLP reps on the NEC. They stand on a platform of peace, internationalism, and nuclear disarmament.

It felt strange not being at a real conference and talking to old friends. However, it shows just what we can do with good communications.’

You can watch still watch Jeremy’s keynote speech and the roundtable with Tom Unterrainer from the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation in conversation with Prof Paul Rogers, Newham Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz and Unison’s Asst Gen Sec Roger McKenzie
