Below is the list of Momentum groups and organisations which have come out in protest against the national Steering Committee/office’s coup against democracy in the organisation and attempt to impose an undemocratic constitution. And below that a shorter list of those which have come out in favour.
(SC) indicates a vote by a Steering Committee-type body rather than a meeting of the whole group. Sheffield Momentum is included in both lists because the votes at their meeting were essentially a draw.
AGAINST THE COUP AND THE CONSTITUTION
Blyth and Wansbeck Momentum
Brighton and Hove Momentum
Cambridge Area Momentum
Cheshire West and Chester Momentum
Liverpool Momentum (Riverside Caucus)
North Tyneside Momentum
Richmond Park and Twickenham Momentum
Sheffield Momentum (SC)
South Tyneside Momentum
South East Kent Momentum
Tower Hamlets Momentum
Truro and Falmouth Momentum
Conference Arrangement Committee (CAC)
London LGBT+ Momentum
Northern Momentum (Regional Committee)
Yorkshire & Humber Momentum (Regional Committee)
Also Red Labour and the Labour Representation Committee (LRC), both previously Momentum-affiliates, have both condemned the coup and declined places on the “National Coordinating Group” created by the new constitution.
FOR THE CONSTITUTION
Manchester and Trafford Momentum (SC)
National Steering Committee (SC)
Youth and Student Momentum (Committee)
Thanks to Momentum Chesterfield activist Callum Salfield for compiling the list. We will update this page regularly as we get more information – at the time of first posting, three weeks after the coup, the count is something like 42-7, depending on which organisations you include.
Please check your sources regarding the Leeds momentum result. #fakenews
Hi Mark – we will check. Could you give us the information as you understand it? Thanks.
