#AbolishEton: Labour's anti-establishment fight back

Sat 21.09.19
1pm – 2:30pm

With Eton-educated Boris Johnson appointing the poshest Cabinet in recent history, it is clear that challenging our privately educated elites should be a key priority for Labour. If Labour is to win the next General Election, it must pick more fights with the establishment. This session will discuss the lessons from the viral #AbolishEton campaign for building the grassroots movement to transform our education system in the interests of the many, not the few.
