Support the PCS strike!

The PCS (Public and Civil Servants Union) striking in defence of jobs, conditions and the public services, have announced further national strike action on Budget Day, Wednesday 24 March.
John McInally, vice president of the union spoke about the dispute at the closing session of a very successful Bristol Convention of the Left in Easton last Saturday. It was unanimously agreed to give all the help we can.
Bristol has a fantastic tradition of support groups (FBU, CWU, VESTAS).

To that end, next Monday 22 March 6pm, at the CWU (Communication Workers Union) Offices, 20 Church Road, Lawrence Hill BS5 9JA.

We will be setting up the Bristol PCS support group,. PCS representatives will update everyone, giving full details, and then it's up to us to get behind them. Please publicise and support. We will all benefit from their victory.

I'm the Green Candidate for Kingswood

I have been selected as the first ever Green Party General Election candidate for Kingswood.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to stand as Kingswood's first ever Green General Election candidate, its about time the people of Kingswood had a real, progressive alternative to the Neo-Liberal agenda of the three main parties. If elected I will only claim an average wage for the constituency, donating the rest to Green Party funds.

Thanks to all who have contributed towards the deposit. Watch this space!
