I am sad to say that we have had no reply to this letter. We should be building bridges not walls

Dear Jeremy,

We met a long time ago through the National Critical Lawyers Group-do you remember??

I have been very concerned that so many activists who wanted to join the Labour Party and Momentum were refused entry.
It seemed such a waste of their energy and experience.

Approximately 10 days ago I set up on facebook an organisation to bring them together.
It is called Movement 2016 and its manifesto is on fb

And we are having a Conference in London on Saturday 19th March-see below

There is some anger among the excluded against the Party and Momentum which I would like to do something about
I have invited Jon to come but have heard nothing as yet.

i think it would be very useful if he came and explained why they were excluded

Here is the Conference draft programme
