Keep Jeremy Corbyn!

30-06-2016 22:11

Readers, following the events of the last couple of weeks I would urge all of you to sign the following vote of confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. It is now more vital than ever that a socialist voice is heard in opposition to the impending move to the right. I for one don’t believe that Corbyn who was voted in less than a year ago with 59% of the vote (more than all the other candidates combined!) by the members should be without support at the recent behaviour of both Labour MPs in their coup attempt.

Cambridge March for Affordable Housing (14/11/2015)

18-11-2015 12:37

Candidate for the world's smallest placard..?
On Saturday November 14th 2015 a march took place in Cambridge that was very much a sign of the times.

It was a march for affordable housing, in an era of all-time-high property prices and proposed Tory policies to force local authorities and housing associations to sell off at least 25% of their existing stock, despite there being enormous demand for new social housing (approximately 2,500 people in the Cambridge area alone are on the Council's waiting list).

@ Love Activists Liverpool - Latest Press Release - 1/5/2015

01-05-2015 17:52

Liverpool is being turned into a police state while labour politicians do nothing. Just take a look at the dispersal order handed to our friends and family for feeding the homeless people of Liverpool, for providing an essential service, which the council is failing to provide. Merseyside Police's use of the Anti-Social Behaviour , Crime and Policing Act 2014 - Section 34/35 powers to move people away from outside the building is a deliberate attack on the human rights of people who support our occupation of the former Bank of England building, 31 Castle St, Liverpool.
