Socialist Party contesting all 18 Coventry council wards

The Socialist Party will contest all 18 Coventry council wards in the local council elections due to take place on 6th May.

This is the first time that the Party will stand in every seat, giving each voter in Coventry the chance to vote for a Socialist Alternative candidate against the 'tweedle dum tweedle dee' politics of the establishment parties.

Our candidates include sitting St Michaels Cllr Rob Windsor who is defending his seat, trade union representatives, community activists, campaigners against student tuition fees and youth unemployment, veterans of the battle against Thatcher's hated poll tax, and leaders of the anti-PFI car parking charges campaign at Walsgrave Hospital.

The Socialist Party has a long record in the city of campaigning and helping working class people to organise against the attacks of Tory and Labour Councils and their accomplices in Westminster.

We are the only party to campaign against the Private Finance Initiative (PFI - Profit From Illness) scheme at Walsgrave, which has meant a private company pocketing 2.7 million in just one year from parking charges.

Only the Socialists opposed the planned Tory council cuts of 72 million over the next three years, when every Labour councillor voted with the Tories.

We have a record of supporting workers in battle against their employers - whether on the picket lines in support of striking ticket office staff at Coventry station or postal workers at Bishop Street fighting against privatisation.

On every issue, we are on the side of ordinary people - whose side are the Tories and Labour on? The answer of course is the bankers, big business and corporate interests.

So, if you want to things to change - a start to this will be to Vote Socialist Alternative on May 6th!
