Hope this conference went well and didn’t get bogged down in “long-winded” discussions.
This Saturday we’re hosting the first annual Netroots UK conference. It brings together the new generation of left activists, working and discussing politics online, with the veteran institutions of trade unions and many more in between. The hope is that we can begin to build a new infrastructure to bring together campaigners and activists so that they can learn from each other.
Our plan isn’t to have long-winded discussions, but create useful spaces where people can discuss strategy drawing on their experience of local campaigns: what works and what doesn’t. We need to help build people’s skills and connect them up so they can get involved in the issues they feel passionate out. We need to create new movements.
