The election is over - but the campaign continues!

On Sat 15th July we are holding our first monthly campaign day - starting in Bishopsworth

We will be knocking on doors talking to local people about issues that matter to them, telling them about Labour's manifesto, and asking how Labour can help in their community.

Come along and help make it a success. All members and supporters are welcome!

Meet Thomas in the cafe at Campus Pool (Whitchurch Rd, BS13 7RW) at 11am and/or 2pm.

Our manifesto has struck a chord across the country, our elected representatives have worked hard, and our members have talked to thousands of people to help build this momentum.

Now is the time to think BIG about where we can win council seats, and to build our presence across Bristol South.

General Election Win - Teresa May's plan failed in Bristol

Thanks to the great campaigning by members, a brilliant Labour Manifesto, and the hard work of our Labour councillors and MP, we won decisively across the whole of Bristol on June 8th. This included Labour's Darren Jones taking Bristol North West from the Tories.

In Bristol South Labour's MP Karin Smyth took 60.1% of the vote, and increased her majority to almost 16,000. This was one of the highest increases in vote share for Labour in the country.

There is no doubt that our growing membership were instrumental in the win. Since the campaign started, we had about 20 groups out every week knocking on doors, more than 250 people helped get out the vote on polling day, and we delivered hundreds of thousands of leaflets.

People told us that the Labour Manifesto inspired them

It gave them hope that a Labour government would create a fairer country, and that we have a serious plan about how to achieve that.

We have pledged to help young people; by reducing the voting age to 16, scrapping tuition fees, and banning unpaid internships.

We have pledged to support the most vulnerable; by investing in social care, building 100,000 council homes, reserving 4,000 homes for rough sleepers.

We have pledged to tackle runaway wealth and profits for the few; by putting a limit on the gap between highest and lowest paid workers, increasing tax on the highest 5% of earners and those with private medical insurance to fund our NHS, and re-nationalising the railways.

We have pledged to ban fracking, cap energy bills, and scrap zero hours contracts... and much much more.
