Respect is asking supporters from Yorkshire, the East Midlands, the east of England, Kent, the Home Counties, and north west, north, east and south east London to travel to Leicester South.
Marxism 2004 festival 9-16 July
This provides one of the best opportunities to mobilise around the by-election campaigns.
The Socialist Workers Party has reorganised the event to make it as easy as possible to get involved in the campaign.
Transport will be available at Marxism 2004 to take activists to both Leicester and Birmingham all through the conference.
Marxism 2004 has been cut to four sessions on Thursday 15 July so Respect supporters can be on the streets and at the polling stations in both constituencies.
The final day at Marxism 2004, Friday 16 July, has been strengthened with lots more meetings and a rally on the way forward for Respect after the by-elections with George Galloway MP, John Rees and Salma Yaqoob.
