Northern England Labour Left Launches

July 1, 2020

NELL, a new organisation aiming to organise and develop the Labour Left in Northern England, is launched today. Its single objective is to win elections at all levels within the Labour Party, Trade Unions, Socialist Societies and public office. 

NELL will not be in competition with other left facing groups such as Momentum, but aims to work with and complement them, with a particular focus on Northern England, where representation can be lacking. It will operate through a fully democratic One Member One Vote membership structure and will also offer exciting training and development programmes for potential candidates at all levels.

New members will initially come from existing left groups across the region who have been collaborating in its establishment. Full roll-out plans will be published soon.
