We’re a group of like-minded people who are acting for a common goal: a socialist Labour victory in the next general election. Momentum Reading was set up in September 2016 after a National Momentum phone-banking meeting, 10 attendees got together and decided that Reading needed its own Momentum branch. The Interim Steering Committee were excited to get going in Reading and campaigned to get Corbyn re-elected as Labour Leader. The first big meeting was a celebration of Corbyn’s victory, lots of people attended and plans were hatched! Reading Momentum held elections to the Steering Committee in January 2017.
Momentum is a movement powered by people – supporters and activists, from all walks of life, right across Britain, active and engaged in their communities, workplaces and online. Momentum Reading is part of that movement.
