Hundreds attend Corbyn rally in Leamington
With little to no notice around 500 people gathered outside Leamington Town Hall today to hear Jeremy Corbyn speak. For an hour beforehand school, college and university students and workers streamed out from their lunch breaks on hearing the word that Corbyn was coming.
Such was the support for Corbyn that the road across the hall had to be temporarily closed in order to accommodate the ever growing numbers gathering either side of the road!
Corbyn spoke with his usual passion and highlighted the many policies that have inspired the sort of support he recieved today, such as a £ 10 an hour minimum wage, ban on zero hour contracts, and end to parking charges at hospitals, a massive affordable house building program and the creation of jobs and better services.
Socialist Party members were inundated with interest with our leaflets and papers making the call for a Corbyn and Labour to adopt a bold, socialist and anti-austerity programme – with mass rallies in every corner of the country that could galvanise and channel the anger and discontent that exists in society in a socialist direction.
Today’s rally was built purely through word of mouth and social media, it gives a glimpse of what could be possible if Jeremy and all those that support him organised and built for huge mass rallies. Such events could inspire hundreds of thousands, if not milllions, and wipe out the threat of the Tories and UKIP in many areas and constituencies.
It stands in great contrast to the defeat of Labour in the West Midlands Mayoral election last week, which showed up the utter failure of Blairism and the right wing of the Labour Party.
We will continue to give our support for the socialist policies of Jeremy Corbyn, and to build for the defeat of the Tories on June 8th! We have organised a public meeting on Wednesday this week at 7.30 in Coventry Methodist Central Hall, to discuss how we can get rid of the Tories and elect Jeremy on socialist policies
