Joao Felix, Socialist Party Wales

We are very pleased to learn that the South Wales NUM (National Union of Mineworkers) has come out in support of Jeremy Corbyn in the current Labour leadership contest. The NUM has a long history of working class struggle, with the South Wales NUM an example of combativity before, during and after, the 1980s miners' strike.

It is therefore very important to hear that the South Wales NUM is supporting Jeremy Corbyn, especially when Pontypridd MP Owen Smith, the opponent propped up by the right wing in the Labour Party, is from this region and with many Labour officials expressing support for Owen Smith and trying to claim South Wales as favourable to him.
