EU Referendum: What should the left say?

As the referendum on Britain's European Union membership approaches, what should the left be arguing and campaigning for?
 
Jeremy Corbyn has made the case for an “in” vote as part of fighting for a “socialist Europe”, “based on public ownership, workers' rights and democracy”. But not everyone on the left agrees. There are socialists on both sides of the argument.
 
The Labour left movement Momentum will be deciding its position at its National Committee meeting on 21 May, and Momentum groups up and down the country are debating the issues around this crucial question. Lewisham Momentum is holding a public debate at Goldsmiths University on 23 May, with two speakers on either side.
 
For “in”: 
• MATT WRACK, general secretary of the Fire Brigades Union
• RUTH CASHMAN, Lambeth Unison branch secretary and leading activist in the campaign to save Lambeth libraries
 
For “out”:
• JAMES KERR, National Union of Teachers activist
• EDDIE DEMPSEY, RMT rail union national executive member
 
Chair: Jill Mountford, Lewisham Momentum chair and Momentum National Committee
 
All welcome. Lots of time for questions and discussion.
