This week Ed Miliband’s announced that between now and May the Labour Party would speak to four million voters.
Labour Students #TeamFightback has already pledged thousands of hours of campaigning. We know the importance of campaigning, and we are committed to ensuring Labour Students is at the heart of those four million conversations. Now it’s time for us to get started!
Labour Students has an absolutely packed agenda to kick of the New Year, starting as we mean to go on. First off, we’ll be heading to Brighton this Saturday with Community Union for a day at the seaside campaigning for the fantastic Peter Kyle. On the 17th and 18thwe’re off to Yorkshire and the Humber, where we’ll be joined by Rachel Reeves and Jon Ashworth as we campaign in Cleethorpes and Pudsey. For the 24th and 25th of January we’ll be visiting the North West for another #teamfightback weekender. And to round off January we’ll be visiting Cambridge and Stevenage on the weekend of the 31st where we’ll be joined by Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt!
This is all part of our #teamfightback campaign. We’re going to be working in key seats all over the country to get as many new Labour MPs elected as possible. With the incredible students who came to Political Weekend promising more than 10,000 hours on the doorstep, this election we hope Labour Students can make an absolutely crucial difference. And of course, none of this would be possible without the support we receive from the Community Union – you can find out more about the Labour Campaign Network here.
We’re also going to be offering prizes for the clubs and individuals who really go above and beyond in the campaigning they do between now and May. We’ll be using our new website to log how many hours clubs and students spend on the campaign trail. The prizes on offer are going to range from drinks in parliament to money for your club!
For January the prize for the club that logs the most hours on the doorstep at the campaign weekends we’ve advertised above will get a visit from a member of the Shadow Cabinet!
There really couldn’t be a better or more important time for you to come along and join us in a key seat. And of course, if you recruit the rest of your club to come along you’re more likely to win one of our fantastic prizes.
With just 120 days to go until Britain elects a Labour Government, Labour Students is ready to campaign and win for the Labour Party.
To get involved come to our campaign days, get in touch with your ideas, and convince your friends that now is the time to make a difference!
RSVP to one of our campaign days now and start January as you mean to go on – fighting for a Labour government.
