London Citizens Mayoral candidates meeting

Awesome, incredible, inspirational………..I am still buzzing after the meeting over over 2,500 people packed into Westminster Central Hall. Barnet UNISON members agreed that the branch affiliate to this organisation.

The potential for organising across communities is fantastic already they have taken on the City Financial Institutions, Tate Modern, Olympics Committee, Ken Livingstone, White City devleopers..............

The cultural diversity was incredible, old and young all feeling part of something that is making a difference to people's lives. At a time when it seems that 'apathy' is threatening our democracy, it was fantastic to see so many people who felt they could and will make a difference.

But now the challenge is out these for UNISON members and their friends and families.

Do you belong to a church, synagogue, mosque, temple, community group, School, University?

If you do then speak to the leaders of your group/community, come along to the next North London Citizens meeting in June ( deatils to be posted later)

Barnet UNISON are now members of a steering group looking at setting up a north London Citizens. For more details of the meeting go to http://www.londoncitizens.org.uk/

Now is the time to get involved and make a difference to our communities
