Labour’s left has been fighting hard to make sure that the anti-democratic debacle of Labour’s 2016 Conference in Liverpool is not repeated in 2017, where the party’s hard right has yet more damaging measures lined up for this year’s Conference in Brighton.
Labour members also need the vital McDonnell Amendment to pass, to prevent the parliamentary right from blocking left-wing candidates in future leadership contests.
The stakes are high.
The timescales for selection and registration have been compressed by the General Election campaign, so some CLPs (constituency Labour parties) have only just selected their delegates to Conference – some might still need to do it.
If you are a pro-Corbyn delegate selected by your CLP you have until tomorrow, Friday 7 July, to register – nobody else can do it for you.
The Conference registration page is here – details of what you will need in order to complete your registration are in the handy graphic created by Momentum below. The links in the graphic are not active but you can register for Women’s Conference via the link just above as well. Note the correction beneath regarding ID:
If you do not have a valid passport, you can tick to indicate this and enter driving licence details. If you don’t have either, you’ll need to contact Labour on 0345 092 2299 urgently.
Remember, if you’re pro-Corbyn delegate, it’s essential that you register in time and attend the event. ‘Show of hands’ votes in particular depend on getting everyone there – and there is a history of ‘card votes’ being denied in favour of shows of hands only, even though this is against Labour’s rules.
See you there!
