Marc Wadsworth, introducing the family of Stephen Lawrence to Nelson Mandela.

This is heartening.

Readers of This Site will be aware of the injustice done to anti-racism activist Marc Wadsworth by the Labour Party.

He was expelled for “bringing the party into disrepute” after an argument with Labour MP Ruth Smeeth over her apparent collusion with the right-wing, anti-Labour press in which she accused him of anti-Semitism, for no good reason at all.

It was a decision that flew in the face of the evidence and supported serious questions about the impartiality of Labour’s disputes process that have been raised over the past two years.

So I was glad to read the following, from Skwawkbox:

Wadsworth has been on tour around the country, speaking to supporters and raising funds for legal action.

So far, at least twenty-one CLPs (constituency Labour parties) have passed motions supporting his reinstatement, including several not considered predominantly left-wing

A large number of other CLPs are believed to have motions planned after CLPD (Campaign for Labour Democracy), which came out against Wadsworth’s expulsion, sent out emails with a model motion.

This Writer’s own case seems to have been buried by Labour – although, with the party’s new general secretary apparently keen to strip defendants facing trumped-up anti-Semitism accusations of their legal representation while the party itself lawyers-up, I’m in no hurry.

But Mr Wadsworth’s case is giving hope to all of us in a similar situation.
