Alan Avery attended the launch in Bradford of the Labour Party’s Manifesto for the 2017 General Election. It was a priveledge to get into the launch an we were lucky to get near the front for a ring side seat as Jeremy Corbyn presented the final Manifesto to the packed atrium at Bradford University. The atmosphere was one of noisy excitement and huge enthusiasm from the party members in the hall and members of the public thronging the balconies. With Alan was Luke Charteris-Reid candidate for York Outer.
Alan visited the Kirby Misperton Protection Camp on Saturday 13th May to meet the anti fracking campaigners and show his support for their stand against fracking and to attest his own strong opposition to fracking.

Jeremy Corbyn came to York on 10th May as part of the launch of the Party’s 2017 General Election campaign. He was greated by a large and wildly enthusiastic crowd which filled and overflowed from St Helen’s Square. His passionate and vigorous speech outlined Labours proposals for a radical socialist alternative not just to the austerity of Theresa May but to the establishment norms of the last 30 years. He was so mobbed by supporters that it took fifteen minutes to move the 100 yards from the platform to the car which was waiting to take him to the sixth rally of the day and 38th of the campaign launch.
