#justice4marc campaign - Aims and Objectives

To campaign for Marc Wadsworth's reinstatement as a Labour Party member and join with other compatible individuals and/or organisations to achieve this goal. The campaign does not see itself in isolation to other people who have been unjustly excluded, suspended or expelled from the Labour Party and will work in a principled way with any members affected, to achieve fair outcomes.
