Jennifer Jones, a student at Goldsmiths College in south east London, is standing for the Left List in the Greenwich & Lewisham London assembly consituency.
Jennifer told Socialist Worker, “I’ve been involved in building the anti-war movement at Goldsmiths and in anti-racism and LGBT campaigns. I was elected as the college’s campaigns and communications officer this year.
“I’m standing for the Left List because it’s giving the working class a voice.
“I’ve got a lot of support from students—there are Left List banners hanging outside windows at the halls of residence and students have been coming along to campaign events. I’m the youngest candidate in south London.
“In my area there are lots of local campaigns. A post office in New Cross is under threat, for example. It’s one of the few that has disabled parking and is used by a lot of older people. The A&E department at Lewisham hospital is threatened with closure and I’ve been part of the campaign to keep it open.
“I visited a bus depot where workers are very angry about Labour. They were interested in the Left List – they hadn’t realised there was a party out there that stood for them.”
