All supporters of the Morning Star from across the Labour Movement in Scotland are invited to this short conference. It takes place in a critical period for the development of our Labour Movement. When every other newspaper and media channel is determined to split and divide, the Morning Star stands for Labour Movement unity, peace, socialism and support for Jeremy Corbyn. The focus of the conference is on how tobuild the readership and influence of the Morning Star and particularly how to develop and strengthen Morning Readers Supporters Groups. It will also hear from the Scottish Editor about the exciting plans to develop Scottish content and eventually Scottish editions.
