Housing fight hits Cambridge

'We held a protest outside the council last week to highlight housing need here.

Many people are paying high rents and then facing extra charges from letting agencies.

We’ve managed to make it an issue in the election.

Now the council has had to say it will carry out a survey into the issue.

We hope to pressure the council to build more council housing in the area.'

Tom Woodcock, Cambridge


Respect aims for Bradford

'Respect is campaigning in 12 seats in Bradford, aiming to build on George Galloway MP’s surprise victory in the city last month.

The campaign is pulling together the left in the city—as well as reaching out to people alienated by the mainstream political parties and looking for change.'

Barry Pavier, Bradford


Vote SACC against the cuts

'I’m standing as part of the Scottish Anti Cuts Coalition (SACC). We’re saying there’s no need for any cuts—make the rich pay. We’ve had a good response to our stalls so far.

We’ve been leafleting and we’re planning a public meeting and a cavalcade. Saturday will be a big day for the campaign.

Some people mention George Galloway. They do it with a bit of a spark in their eyes. It makes people see the possibilities.'

Angela McCormick, Glasgow
