Recently our powerful pro-choice slogan has been used by groups demanding the right to wear the viel. Among those on these "womens right to choose" demonstrations have been George Galloway, Salma Yacoob and Anas Altikriti all of whom are understood to have stated that they would vote to outlaw abortion in all but a few cases if given the chance. So far RESPECT has refused to make any public statement on it's position.
A picket for the RESPECTS leeds public meeting (where GG and Altikriti will speak) has been arranged for 7-15pm 26th April, Leeds University Conference auditorium.
I urge other activists around the country to organise similar pickets; ask women's officers at universities hosting the meetings to condemn; ask questions of the candidates during hustings and at public meetings.

Come on RESPECT -make your position clear before you ask us for our votes.
