The Labour4Clause4 campaign invites you to discuss why we need to restore Clause IV and commit Labour once again to the fight for socialism.

“To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry and the most equitable distribution thereof that may be possible upon the basis of the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service.” (pre-1995 constitution of the Labour Party – Clause 4, part 4)

Clause IV was Labour’s original commitment to end capitalism and bring about the socialist transformation of society. It was adopted by the Labour Party in 1918, but removed by Tony Blair when he established New Labour.

There has never been a better time to bring back Clause IV. Privatisation has proved an unmitigated disaster. Support for nationalisation is on the rise. New Labour is dead and the party has been transformed under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. It is time to bring back bold socialist policies.

We need to take the economy out of the hands of the profiteers and place it in the hands of working people.

Speakers: Ian Hodson – Bakers, Food, and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) President, Rob Sewell – Labour4Clause4 campaign co-ordinator, Steve Watson – Cambridge Local Momentum Chair
