Every week, we’ll try to keep you updated with local events – public meetings, strikes, occupations, marches, protests, elections and so on. We might also throw in some cultural goings-on, too. If you know of an event that we’ve missed out, please let us know: momentumedinburgh [at] gmail [dot] com

Momentum is the UK-wide movement which emerged from Jeremy Corbyn’s successful campaign for leader of the Labour Party. It exists to support the ideas and values on which Corbyn was elected both within and outside Labour, connecting the party to trade unions, social movements and community campaigns.
Momentum Edinburgh is a hub for local supporters to get together, share experience and ideas, and coordinate our efforts to build peace, democracy and socialism.
This is our second meeting, where we will discuss the Democracy Working Group’s proposals for a sustainable, democratic and engaging decision-making structure so that we can coordinate our activities as effectively as possible. Details of these proposals will be circulated before the meeting, along with an agenda.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
