Mary Jackson's Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) election campaign for Doncaster mayor held a successful launch meeting on 2 April.

Sixty people attended, including many RMT rail union activists and the Lindholme prison POA branch secretary.

Great speeches were made by Joe Robinson - the 21-year-old newly elected TUSC councillor in Maltby, Mary Jackson, Tony Mulhearn - one of the Liverpool 47 councillors who fought Thatcher in the 1980s, and Bob Crow - RMT general secretary.

Over 250 was raised to help fund the campaign, and lots of offers to help were made.

See issue 759 of the Socialist or www.socialistparty.org.uk for more on Mary's election campaign.

A pre-election rally will be held on Monday 29 April, 7.30pm at Doncaster Trades and Labour Club, Frenchgate Centre, DN1 1LL.

Speakers will include Mary Jackson and former MP Dave Nellist, who only took a worker's wage as an MP.
