Join Labour and start the fight-back
The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that 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. Well over 100 people have joined Stroud Constituency Labour Party since the General Election. We believe the Coalition Government is making the wrong cuts at the wrong time - their actions are likely to plunge us back into recession. The cuts are also impacting more on the most vulnerable. 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?
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 elected as Labour Leader
Labour Party members across Stroud District have welcomed the news that Jeremy Corbyn has been elected as our Leader. We offer our congratulations to Jeremy, and to Tom Watson, and look forward to working with them both on the campaign 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/

Tory changes to registration could mean a million people won’t be able to vote - don’t lose out!
