The SKWAWKBOX covered some time ago the issue of the massive disenfranchisement of Labour members from the selection of candidates for local and national elections – an incredible seven-year deprivation of their democratic rights as Labour members by right-wingers prepared to act unlawfully to maintain their hold on power in a major city.

Momentum in Birmingham are looking for your help in raising awareness of this disgraceful, anti-democratic behaviour and to overturn it. Please watch the video below then act and – wherever you live – share:
