National Campaign Day – Saturday March 11th

Hove campaigners on George St. Care for the NHS campaign day
Hove and Portslade Labour have organised two events for the next national Campaign Day, this Saturday March 11th. The theme for this day is the post-budget reaction.

  1. George St. Hove, 10.30am – 2.00pm
  2. Boundary Road, Portslade (near Tesco), 10.30 – 2.00pm

If you have never done anything like this before you have nothing to fear. You’ll be helped by other experienced & friendly activists. It’s an excellent way to get more than involved with your local party and an opportunity to talk to the public about an alternative to austerity.

Brighton & Hove Labour Women have organised a lunchtime action to support the Global Women’s Strike. Meet up outside Brighton Town Hall at noon on Wednesday, 8 March, for a Women’s Walk to the Clock Tower, where there will be speeches followed by leafleting and petitioning until 2pm.

Bring brooms and wear black (or red) if you can. But most of all, please join our sisters in solidarity. There will also be an early evening event organised by Sisters Uncut – see Sisters Uncut Brighton – Strike4Services.

March for our NHS

Our NHS Poster#ourNHS National Demonstration 4 March 2017

We must fight to save the NHS from destruction. The threat is real. It is happening now. Hospitals, GPs, mental health, ambulance and community services are on their knees.

The NHS is nor of our greatest achievements. We cannot allow it to be undermined and sold off to private companies and friends of tory ministers. There has been a 14% pay cut in real terms since 2010 and many NHS staff are at breaking point. Support our staff, and support our NHS.

Pay what you can afford for group train travel to the national Our NHS demonstration in London on Saturday March 4th, 2017. Thousands of us will march from Tavistock Square to Parliament, to demand a fully funded, publicly owned, NHS and social care service.

Book your tickets *before 7pm on Thursday 2nd March*

Meet 9.15am, Brighton station, to collect your ticket. Tickets are only valid when travelling in a group. We will travel on the following trains:

Outward train: 10.05 from Brighton to St Pancras.

Return train: 18.00 from Victoria, arriving Brighton 18.54


International Women’s Day

Last year Labour had a huge presence in Brighton at the Dome for International Women’s Day 2017, and this year we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange and join the theme of the day.

After the USA elected a misogynist and women’s right to choice is under attack across the world we have seen the fight back start with millions of Women march across the world but the any progress cannot be taken for granted. Whatever your gender, we need you to stand up and be #BeBoldForChange. We will be co-ordinating our activities across the city with Labour and we need your help.

On Saturday, March 4th, 2017, Brighton Dome, Brighton Women’s Centre and Brighton Museum join forces to present our annual celebration of International Women’s Day. Bursting with activities, gender equality is firmly on the agenda.

There will be a marketplace of ideas alongside a specially curated programme of inspiring speakers, activists and innovators, workshops, arts & crafts, causes and campaigns, with fun for all the family and I have the pleasure of inviting you to become a stallholder.

If you can get involved please email our Women’s Officer Melanie Melvin on visit the Labour Kemptown Women twitter account: @kemptownwomen
