We may be looking down the barrel of the festive season, but it’s not time to head for the sofa with those mince pies just yet!
We will be out knocking on doors and talking to local people come rain or shine, so watch the website for the next day out on the doorstep near you. For now though, here are some activities you can get involved in with your Local labour party and other campaigning groups who are fighting for social justice in Bristol.
Wed 23rd Nov: We are all Daniel Blake - Protest the Autumn Statement (from 5pm)
Bristol People’s Assembly is organising a protest targeting the government on the day of their Autumn Statement. If you feel strongly that our country should stop welfare cuts and nonsensical assessments and sanctions that leave people unable to work or claim their benefits, come along. Let’s show that the Labour Party is the party that stands up against draconian Tory cuts and welfare policy. Assemble from 17.00 at Job Centre Plus, 16 St Stephen's St, Bristol, BS1 1EN You can RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/183654965425706/
