#NoVoteNoVoice

This is a campaign Unite are working on with the Mirror, Hope not Hate, the NUT and others to increase voter turn-out at the next general election.

The Mirror want to register 1 million new voters. For background please check out this story.

This is going to be an ongoing campaign so we should all hear more between now and voter registration cut-off date.

If you would like to give the campaign some encouragement this is the page where members can register to vote.

And this article from the good people of Ammp3d is great.

Fighting Cuts at Conference

Earlier this week, Unite was proud to co-host with the Daily Mirror a meeting at the Labour Party conference.  This was a special meeting because it was led by those who are at the front line of fighting the cuts.

Jack, a young single mother talked of the struggle to find work and bring up a toddler on a pittance.

Mary, a woman who fears that the full life she currently leads will come to an end when the government withdraws the benefits she receives as a profoundly disabled woman.

And Hetty, who has spent much of her 107 years fighting for social justice and is determindely fighting to save the NHS today.

These women brought those attending the fringe near to tears with their tales of courage in the midst of adversity, and the humanity that compels them to fight for a better world for all should inspire us as we fight to for fainress and decency for the people of our nations.

Please do watch and share.

With many thanks
