Solidarity to Jeremy Corbyn and an initiative to reinvigorate progressive politics in the UK

DiEM25 interprets the decision of the current Labour Party leadership to suspend Jeremy Corbyn as a cynical attempt to purge the Labour Party of any force capable of turning the Labour Party, as Jeremy did between 2015 and 2019, into a serious threat to the oligarchy’s hold over power.

In view of this McCarthyite purge, DiEM25 recognises that progressive voices within the Labour Party are asphyxiating. They note that no action was ever taken against the smear campaign by key Labour Party functionaries against the Corbyn leadership during the 2017 and 2019 general election campaigns. And, now, they observe in horror the current leadership’s purge of those who, beginning with Jeremy Corbyn, worked toward policies, and a Manifesto, that threatened the privileged.

At this juncture, DiEM25 is calling upon Britain’s progressives (those inside but also outside the Labour Party) to urgent consultations regarding the future of progressive politics in the UK. Soon, DiEM25 shall announce an initiative to bring these voices together to take stock and plan ahead.
