Welcome to the website of Stroud Constituency Labour Party
David Drew Sets Course for a United Party
As you will know Jeremy Corbyn was re-elected with an increased majority as Leader of the Labour Party. All Labour supporters are welcome in Stroud Labour Party - whoever they may have supported in the leadership election. We are a united party here in Stroud, united to campaign for a more just and equal society.
We are now meeting again, getting behind national campaigns and working to win seats in next summer's county council elections. We are all going to be working hard for a Labour Council and a Labour Government. Branch meetings happening now and details are available from our branch contacts listed at www.stroudlabour.org.uk/get-involved
Join Labour and start the fight-back
The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. We believe by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few. Where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe. And where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.
At our meetings we discuss national and local policy issues, hear reports from our Labour councillors. We plan our campaigns and other activities. Stroud Constituency Labour Party has tripled in size since the General Election. We believe the government is making the wrong cuts at the wrong time: its actions are likely to plunge us back into recession. The cuts are also impacting more on the most vulnerable in our society. There is an alternative, both locally and nationally. Why not join us and campaign with us for a fairer strategy to tackle our economic problems? You can join here – it costs as little as £1 a month.
There are so many people who are suffering and who need that fairer strategy. The woman at the foodbank because her zero hour contract doesn't pay enough to live on. The man having to leave his home after his disabled son dies and suddenly he has a spare bedroom. The women who can't work because they can't afford childcare. People waiting in pain for months for surgery. Our NHS is at creaking point, our green fields are under threat from developers, and climate change is being ignored in favour of subsidising fossil fuels.
Jeremy Corbyn re-elected as Labour Leader
Labour Party members in Stroud Constituency supported the nomination of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party. There was a lively and friendly debate on the qualities of the candidates following which Stroud placed its name as supporting Jeremy Corbyn. Each eligible member, registered supporter and registered affiliate had a vote in the ballot announced on 24 September. We now look forward to working the national party and leadership in campaigning to reduce inequality and to hold this Tory Government to account. Our membership is increasing dramatically - to join us and work with us go to http://www.labour.org.uk/
