CAMPAIGNING

Campaigning composite

DIARY DATES 2017!

 

While many members will campaign with their own interest groups – working for better provision of housing, pensions, NHS, disabled access etc –  Kensington CLP has a growing group of people who will attend conferences, seminars, pickets, protests and marches together. It is hugely encouraging to spend time with tens or tens of thousands of like-minded people, friendships and alliances are made and  you cannot underestimate the inspirational value of hearing speakers at first hand. In the past year we have attended:

Climate March

Refugees Welcome Here

CND

Kill the Housing Bill/Axe the Housing Act

People’s Assembly against Austerity

Pickets at St Mary’s and Hammersmith Hospitals

Support Jeremy Corbyn for Leader

… and supported campaigns, leafleting and petitions for:

  • disabled access at tube stations
  • Remain
  • Save North Ken Library for Community Use
  • Westway23
  • ‘Don’t put our Doctors in a Dungeon’
  • and of course the Mayoral campaign

We will always support local campaigns where possible, let us know on kensingtonlabour@gmail.com if you would like your local Labour party to support you. And send us your photos!

We have flags!

An increasing number of members attend marches and protests, so we have recently acquired some wonderful Kensington Labour flags, that also proudly proclaim our affiliations to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, and Republic, campaign for an elected head of state.

Here are some of the events that we attended in the past few months:
