We are Momentum Merseyside! We are Labour Party members and supporters dedicated to fighting austerity, for social change, and for a more democratic Party.
Momentum has developed out of Jeremy Corbyn's successful campaign for leadership of the Labour Party. We aim to encourage participation and debate in the Labour Party.
You don't have to be a Labour Party member to be involved in Momentum - although we encourage everyone to get involved in the party.
