Anne Lemon is the TUSC candidate for Bristol North West. She explained to Socialist Worker how she’s using her campaign to build resistance to austerity. 

Anne said,“We’ve concentrated on some of the constituency’s most deprived areas.”

She said the campaign was tapping into anger at cuts. 

“In Bristol the library closures campaign is a big issue,” she said. “The Tory council is trying to sack all the workers and get volunteers in. 

“Attacks on the health service have also got people angry. They’re trying to privatise mental health services and a private hospital has opened in Emerson Green that’s not providing services people had before.”  

Anne explained that many people are disillusioned with mainstream politics. She said, “Lots of people say they aren’t going to vote and that politicians are all the same.

“But TUSC is showing people they don’t have to put up with austerity.”
