Socialist Alliance

Issue No. 1812

THE SOCIALIST Alliance in Hackney, east London, has unanimously selected Paul Foot to stand for mayor of Hackney in the election to be held on Thursday 17 October.

This will be an important election campaign for the Socialist Alliance in London and beyond. In the May council elections the Socialist Alliance performed well in Hackney.

Paul Foot's campaign is aimed at the many people in the borough who want a fightback against New Labour's policies locally, nationally and internationally. The campaign will strongly feature opposition to the war on Iraq and racism, as well as total opposition to privatisation and low pay. It can be a broadly-based, colourful and lively campaign which will begin to offer hope to those who have written off the major parties.
