Respect takes relief initiative

Issue No. 1933

PRESTON RESPECT councillor Michael Lavalette has taken the initiative to raise support in the town for the victims of the tsunami disaster.

He proposed a motion this week that calls on Preston council to throw its full weight behind collecting funds for the disaster and declare 13 January a local day of action.

The motion also raises the pressing issue of getting the British government to raise its general aid budget to begin to reverse the growing gap between rich and poor across the world.
