The General Election in May will be held together with local elections in England in over 6,000 council wards in 279 local authorities. The biggest cuts have been made to local public services, with councillors of ALL parties – Labour and Green as much as the Tories, Liberal Democrats and UKIP – meekly voting them through.
That’s why the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) will be standing in both the general election and the local council elections in May 2015. To make sure establishment politicians are not left unchallenged for their Westminster seats – and to campaign to have councillors in place who will refuse to implement the cuts that will be made by whoever is the new occupant of Number Ten.
Can you help? TUSC stood 560 candidates in the 2014 local elections, the biggest left-of-Labour working class election challenge since the end of world war two. Are you prepared to be a candidate next time?
How many candidates for the council elections will there be in 2015? Can you help build support in your trade union or your local community for candidates who will fight back? Can we stand a candidate in the parliamentary election? TUSC aims to field 1000 council candidates and 106 parliamentary candidates-
TUSC’s ten-point core policy platform for local elections outlines our plans for the general election, and a brief introduction to TUSC. Why not come on board? If we don’t fight to change things, nothing will change.
