Congratulations to the Save Wornington College Campaigners Who Took on the Council and Won!

Our very own Sam Batra, Branch Secretary, CLP Social Media Manager and member of the Save Wornington College Campaign Group wrote an excellent piece about the campaign to save Wornington College after it’s clandestine purchase by RBKC for redevelopment into luxury accommodation.

The campaign group has worked tirelessly since 2016 and they are an inspiration to us all!

Murad’s Statement

Boris Johnson ‘s government is pursuing a divisive and reactionary agenda across the board.

We must stand shoulder to shoulder with all those communities, trade unions, migrants and others resisting the Tory attacks.

Now is the time to unite our party, take the fight to the Tories, get Sadiq Khan re-elected and secure a London for the many, not the few.

Having served as an Assembly Member (AM) until 2016, I want to get back into City Hall to stand up for Londoners.

As an experienced campaigner, I have a proven track record of working against austerity and privatization. Working with Trade Unions and local Labour Groups I helped save fire stations from austerity cuts and post offices from closure.

I believe Labour must continue to oppose cuts and support investment in our future, including through extending public ownership and a green new deal.

As Jeremy Corbyn’s successor as Chair of the Stop the War Coalition, I have been at the forefront of the anti-Trump marches.

We will continue these protests every time he comes to our shores and oppose his attacks on our Mayor.

We must continue to stand up to hate and for unity, not division.

I also want to continue working with all the campaigns I have been involved with on tackling the climate emergency – against expansion of airports in London like Heathrow and City Airport, for improvements in air quality and reductions in noise pollution.

As the inspirational student climate strikers showed us, we need a politics that puts people and planet – not private profit – first.

I’d like to thank all the CLPs who nominated me and everyone who has supported my campaign so far, including the CWU, FBU and UNISON Labour Link Greater London regions, London Labour Left, Socialist Health Association, Councillors including Council Leader Stephen Cowan of Hammersmith & Fulham and of course MPs Andy Slaughter, John McDonnell, Diane Abbott. 

And also an endorsement from Emma Dent Coad of Kensington 

“As AM, Murad worked tirelessly to fight Mayor Johnson’s proposed cuts to police and fire stations. Indeed the team at North Ken fire station, the first team to the Grenfell Tower fire over two years ago, have acknowledged that he was probably instrumental in saving their station. 

Murad has the rare qualities of understanding issues and problems from all quarters of our unequal society with empathy and kindness, while being able to grasp complex issues and how best to lobby, argue and petition the appropriate people at the right time. 

I have no hesitation in endorsing Murad as a London Assembly candidate” 

A better world is possible. Please give me your support.
