The demand to restore Clause 4 has found an enormous echo across the labour movement. We must use the opportunity of a review to fight for a new clause based on the principles of common ownership and socialism.
A packed room of grassroots Labour activists heard from John McDonnell and leading trade unionists at the Labour4Clause4 fringe meeting on Monday evening. All the speakers pledged their support for Clause 4.
Clause 4 received a standing ovation from delegates at this year's Labour conference, with massive backing from CLP delegates. The Blairite stain on our movement will finally be removed.
The upcoming Labour Party conference will be debating rule change motions calling for the original Clause 4 to be brought back. Unsurprisingly, this news has not been met with a warm response from the defenders of Blair's toxic legacy.
The recent Stand Up for Clause Four gig was a great success, with John McDonnell MP expressing his support for bringing back Clause Four.
With a general election on the cards, and with only a few weeks to go until this year's Labour Party conference in Brighton, now is the time for one more push to restore Clause 4!
