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:
Refugees Welcome Here
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
- Save North Ken Library for Community Use
- ‘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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
Junior Doctors’ strike, April, St Mary’s Paddington
CND march and rally, February
Kill the Housing Bill, March
People’s Assembly against Austerity, March
Do join us. We post meeting places on the Kensington Labour Facebook page so you can find out what we are doing. Let us know if you’re coming so we don’t miss you!
