The youth wing of Momentum has frequently come under scrutiny, and in fact formally no longer exists.
Momentum Youth and Students was dissolved for behaviour on social media that was contrary to Momentum’s Code of Ethics.
Moreover, at various Young Labour events, young members have complained of an atmosphere of intimidation and harassment, in particular of critical left-wing voices. These concerns about the interventions in Young Labour were discussed by the NCG.
At its last meeting in February, the outgoing NCG unanimously agreed to review how Momentum intervenes in Labour’s youth and student sections.
We need to follow this up to make sure it happens, and make the issues that have been raised are not dropped.
