And here is a pdf of the report itself, and our handy 2-page summary:
It's not just about starting conversations - it's about getting ready to put these ideas into practice.
This is not just about Labour.
The Green Party have been pushing for public ownership for years, and opposing privatisation, as have trade unions.
The SNP has protected the Scottish NHS from privatisation, runs an amazingly successful public water company, and recently lifted the ban on local public bus companies.
Every party has a role to play in building a fairer and more democratic society.
- If you are a member of a political party or a trade union, here's a model motion that you can use and modify.
- If you're a member of the Labour Party, here's a model motion that you can pass at your CLP meeting. We need a few CLPs to take this motion to Labour conference! If you think you can help, let us know at email@example.com.
- If you're a member of the SNP or Plaid Cymru, or any other party, here's a model motion that you can use and modify.
- If you're a member of the Green Party, we've got a plan to get these ideas discussed at the Autumn conference, but we need your help! Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help us submit a motion.
We want to hear from you about any motions you pass, or conversations you start with local organisations. Email us on email@example.com and let us know what you've been up to!
Let's get the ball rolling! 21st century public ownership is all about building from the ground up - so what are we waiting for?
