Together with the musician and long time electoral reformer Billy Bragg, Neil Lawson (Compass), Billy Hayes of the CWU and Fiona McTaggert MP Take Back Parliament are holding a purple rally for reform in Manchester Town Square.
YOU DON’T NEED A PASS FOR THIS EVENT – Its outside of the security zone.
Message from Billy:
“In just a few weeks we’ll find out who the next Labour leader is – and just how committed that leader is to renewing our democracy.
Weâ€™re going to need a united front to win this referendum on AV. We’re going to need people of all parties and none standing up and telling the political class that it’s no longer credible to spin us a yarn of the ‘new politics’ when we don’t even have a fair vote.
Manchester is the location for the Labour party’s major annual conference and I am inviting you to join me in turning Albert Square purple on 28th September at 6pm. We will gather with banners and placards to demand that the Labour leader stays true to their commitment to fairer votes.”
More details to be added soon. Please sign up to attend and help spread the word!
