Jeremy Corbyn told thousands of Labour supporters at six simultaneous rallies, “We are going all-out to win this election”.
He addressed a crowd of 6,000 in Birmingham, last night, Tuesday, who chanted his campaign slogan “for the many, not the few”.
His speech was relayed to events in Barry, Brighton, Croydon, Glasgow, and Warrington where senior Labour figures joined left wing celebrities.
Corbyn said, “Let’s work together across the whole country to show them our programme is real, serious and here. And we are real, serious and here.
“And do you know what? We are going to change things.”
In an atmosphere of solidarity strangers nodded and smiled at one another.
The crowd brought together young and old, disabled people, students, heath workers, teachers, unemployed and a generous mix of ethnicities.
Jane was there with her teenage daughter. She told Socialist Worker, “I’m one of many who have found themselves on no income as a result of my disability benefit being stopped.
“I was deemed fit for work, yet employers won’t hire me due to my disabilities. I’m terrified of what’s going to happen if Jeremy doesn’t win.”
