Good week end of campaigning.

Saturday morning we hit the city centre with three campaigning stalls set up in Oxford Street, around a dozen supporters and me on the megaphone.
We were highlighting the fact that whoever forms the next government there will be massive cuts in public sector jobs and services.
TUSC are the only ones saying we should not pay for the bankers crisis! We gave out hundreds of leaflets and dozens signed up to our campaign to 'Save Jobs & Services'. The Evening Post photographer turned to take a few pics of our activities and hopefully we will get it in the Post this week.
On Sunday we were campaigning around the Sandfields and around the Brunswick Street area. Although quiet as you would expect on a Sunday morning we received a warm response and at least voters will know we are standing and offering a socialist alternative to the main parties.
We also came across a handful of BNP members giving out their divisive and racist literature down the Sandfields and that is why it is important for us to be out counteracting that poison. Our weekly Socialist Party meeting, open to members and supporters, will be discussing how to defeat the BNP this Thursday. Get in touch if you want to come along.
Another busy week ahead so if anyone wants to help on our stalls during the day or leafleting and canvassing in the evenings then let me know.
