Come to the launch of Scottish Labour Young Socialists: a new organisation that seeks to bring together members, trade unionists, and activists who believe the Labour party should be a democratic and socialist force for change.
Inspired by the movement that elected Jeremy Corbyn and brought thousands of young people into the Labour Party, Scottish Labour Young Socialists represent youth attracted by the prospect of a Labour Party led by the grassroots - members, trade unionists and social movements, as opposed to a party micromanaged by a clique of professionalised politicians with the links and privileges of the rich and powerful.
Scottish Labour Young Socialists hope to build on this momentum and establish a force on the Scottish Labour left that will campaign for more democratic party structures, socialist ideas, and get involved in campaigns fighting austerity and injustice.
Membership is open to anyone under the age of 30.
Our launch event will be split into three sessions:
Labour Past: How we got here?
Labour Present: What is the situation now?
Labour Future: What is to be done?
Drinks and probably dancing will follow! Details of the pub location will be posted soon.
