Venue: Amersham Arms, 388 New Cross Rd, London SE14 6TY

Organiser: BILL WALTHER OF LEWISHAM MOMENTUM

Momentum is an organisation within the Labour Party which supports a radical Labour government. Bill Walther is an activist in the Labour Party and Momentum, a member of the NUT and Unite unions and a teacher.

How is it that conservatives always seem to have an easier time getting their message across? How do progressives trap themselves and how can they escape those traps? How can we put together political arguments to counter the right? We will look at why people are willing to vote against their own political interests and what we can do about it in our daily political conversations and in campaigning for radical change. The session will be a practical workshop on how to fight back against conservative thinking and avoid mistakes that progressives often make. We’ll learn why moving to the centre is disastrous for the left. You’ll come away with an approach to connecting with people on any current political topic.
