STOP destroying our communities
STOP racial and social inequality
STOP academisation STOP financial waste

This is a very important protest so we urge our member to join in. Lambeth UNISON will be there with its banner.

Migrants rights action in Brixton

Lambeth UNISON and Unite Community branch organised an action outside Olive Morris House on 4 July to call for migrant rights and for our communities in Lambeth to stand together.

Lambeth has one of the largest Portuguese communities outside Portugal, and a large Polish community, alongside many other nationalities of people effected by the vote to leave the EU. An organiser from a Polish community organisation came along to thank us for the action and plans are afoot for more events in the near future. Please get in touch to help.

Unity and solidarity in the months and days ahead will be essential.

Organisers also wanted to send a message of support to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a man of principle who is standing up for the rest of us and needs our support.
