Why I joined Walton CLP
Some reasons why people joined Walton CLP – feel free to send us yours using the form below:
“I believe in a Socialist Labour government with the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn and to promote true socialist values on the door step enthusing people to vote for the many not the few”
“I was brought up a socialist and showed the values of socialism by my nan.
I worked for local government for over 13 years and although politically minded I was not allowed to be associated with a political party.
When I had to leave work over a year ago to become my wife’s carer as she almost died, I wanted to do something that matters and that was to join labour and try to make a difference and stand against austerity and contribute to a more fair and just society!”
“Jeremy Corbyn was running for leadership and it all suddenly seemed possible… another world within our reach…”
“I want to help make a change for good in the city and standing outside the ruling party isn’t going to make a difference, the difference needs to happen from within.”
“I joined the party because as a passionate campaigner on equality, LGBT+, Women’s rights being very close to my heart, I didn’t join to become a Cllr or a elected official, I joined to help people in my community, help and support those who need it where I never got growing up, I give everything day in day out at any expense mentally, physically to help those who I can, that is why anybody should join our movement.”
“Coz Lena made me.”
“I believe in the complete overthrow of a corrupt system rigged by the elites, monarchs, oligarchs and capitalists, for which the Labour Party seems the most appropriate vehicle in 2018.”
“To have an insight into my community and, if required, help to make the community the best it can be in these times of austerity.”
“I wanted to make real social change I thought my experience of capacity building communities could help with the vision of creating a moment.
When I first heard JC speak that was the night and went home and joined my first ever political party
The vision resonated within my own belief system
It was time to choose, I could longer take a Centralist view.”
“I saw my kids, who had always sympathised with left wing causes, inspired to commit themselves to the cause of socialism. I’d always been a socialist and I felt I had found a true home.”
“I want the area I live in to be regenerated and not ignored by the Southern biased Tories, and more police on the streets.”
“People shouldn’t starve whilst the rich avoid taxes and destroy our planet in the process.”
