Blacklisting protester injured by hit-and-run driver

George Tapp, 64, a retired electrician and Unite activist who lives in Salford, was seriously injured by a hit-and-run driver yesterday outside the offices of construction firm BAM in Manchester.

George was taking part in a Unite protest against BAM's sacking of shop steward Frank Morris. He sustained a head injury and two broken legs and is being treated in Manchester Royal Infirmary. Witnesses say the car drove deliberately and at speed into the crowd of protesters.

George has twice fought the Ordsall ward in Salford for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC).

In 2012 he achieved a 19% vote share. He has been an active campaigner on pensioners' issues, against council cuts and against the bedroom tax - he called a meeting in Ordsall against the tax two weeks ago which drew over 60 people.
