Vote TUSC for the alternative in local elections

Issue No. 2403

Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) candidates and their supporters have been out campaigning in over 500 council wards across Britain. 

Socialist Worker supporters are standing as TUSC candidates in Manchester, Barnsley, Sheffield, Birmingham, Portsmouth and London. 

Adi Graham is a delivery driver and RMT union member. He is standing for TUSC in the Cosham ward in Portsmouth. 

He said, “We have put out about 2,500 leaflets. Every household will have had a leaflet by the weekend.”

In Tottenham, north London, TUSC candidate Simon Hester said almost 20,000 homes across four target wards have had a TUSC leaflet.

North London candidates have translated their materials into Turkish and Polish. Maxine Bowler, a candidate in Sheffield, has had hers translated into Slovakian and Arabic. 

“It’s important that we have socialists standing and speaking out against the scapegoating of migrants,” she said.
