July 1 rally

Great day at our July 1 rally in support of Labour’s campaign day against austerity: about 150 people turned out to hear, amongst others, Jared O’Mara, Sheffield’s newest and most left-wing MP. The rally was hosted by Momentum, Young Labour and Sheffield Trades Council.

We also had speakers from the Orgreave Campaign, Momentum NHS, Sheffield Needs a Payrise, Unite Community, Liz Lawrence (former UCU president), a rep from the Eastern Avenue Jobcentre strikers and many more. A highlight: A super smart 11 year old girl from Walkley Primary School addressing the crowd, shouting “girl power” and “we need to get rid of Theresa May”!
