Newham United Against Austerity: Launch event Saturday 30 January 2pm Stratford with John McDonnell MP

This was in the "Newham Recorder" letters page this week.

"Dear Editor 

I am writing to invite Newham Residents to the inaugural meeting of a new campaigning organisation for our Borough, “Newham United Against ‎Austerity”.  

We have a special guest speaker for our launch, John McDonnell MP, the Labour Shadow Chancellor. 

The event is free and open to all Newham residents and workers. It is the start of a joint trade union and community based campaign against the Government's attempt to starve Newham’s public services of funds and impose Austerity upon us. 

The meeting will take place 2-4pm, Saturday 30 January 2016, University East London, Stratford Campus, Main lecture theatre Water Lane Stratford E15 4LZ.

Our MP Lyn Brown will be there and the other speakers will be Kevin Courtney, the Deputy General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, Custom House Councillor, Rokhsana Fiaz and Yvonne Green, the Greater London Convenor for the public service union Unison. There are no tickets so please turn up promptly.

If you want any further information please contact our secretary petersmith@newhamteachers.org.uk

Yours faithfully

John Gray
NUAA Steering Committee
