Hundreds rally for Corbyn in Leamington
With little to no notice around 500 people gathered outside Leamington Town Hall on 8 May to hear Jeremy Corbyn speak. For an hour beforehand school, college and university students and workers streamed out from their lunch breaks on hearing the word that Corbyn was coming.
Such was the support for Corbyn that the road across the hall had to be temporarily closed in order to accommodate the ever-growing numbers!
Socialist Party members were inundated with interest in our papers and leaflets. The rally was built purely through word of mouth and social media. It gives a glimpse of what could be possible if Jeremy and all those that support him organised and built properly for huge mass rallies.
