The long-promised proposals for democratic reform in Momentum were due to be published on 17 January 2022.
No word. Not even an explanation of why there’s a delay, and when the proposals may come.
Unofficially we’ve been told they will be out “very soon”, and have been held up by consultation with affiliates.
Unofficially again, we were advised to get more information from the Momentum National Coordinating Group minutes – but the latest minutes available are from 5 September 2021, so no light there.
Even 17 January was a long postponement compared to the schedule published early in 2021, according to which:
September 26: interim proposal published….
December: all member ballot.
Momentum has something like 20 paid staff. Evidently they are not spending their time getting Momentum members out onto the streets, or onto picket lines, or even helping local Momentum groups caucus to fight back in their CLPs. They should at least be able to get minutes out.
