We Are Ready!” TUSC Activists Outline Campaign Activity At Open Meeting  

Trade Unionist & Socialist Coalition (TUSC) supporters met at an open meeting at  Portsmouth Railway Club on Monday 29th March to announce activity and to launch a finance appeal.

Writing after the meeting, Richard Howard, Portsmouth RMT branch secretary wrote:

“Mick Tosh is a candidate who offers an alternative to cuts, to racism and the poor paying for the follies and excesses of the rich, Mick will represent the views of his constituents and not fat cat bankers and businesses. If elected Mick will take the wage of an average worker in his constituency.

We need your assistance, moral, practical and financial to stand against the planned cuts on jobs and the welfare state, to build solidarity between workers in this area who face battles in the future and be a voice for workers in parliament. I appeal to you and to those within your Branch to come to our aid and assist us in whatever capacity you feel is possible. There is a pressing need for financial support. This is what the political fund is for, to support political efforts on behalf of our members interests. We can send speakers to any meeting including your branch meeting to explain our position and answer any questions you and your members will have. I look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.”
