The Battle For West Yorkshire

JUST West Yorkshire

JUST West Yorkshire has joined Operation Black Vote, the 1990 Trust and Equanomics UK to produce an Elections Manifesto document entitled ‘The Price of Race Inequality.’ With contributions from over 30 BME and progressive organisations, the document is designed to help BME voters decide who they should vote for in the 2010 General Elections.

The Manifesto sets out the evidence of race inequality in Britain today and provides constructive recommendations for political parties to consider. These include a call to improve public services, tackle poverty, discrimination and disadvantage, and challenge the fall-out from the war on terror and stop and search operations.

Given the historic failure of political parties to deliver a fair deal for BME communities, the Manifesto calls on politicians to reject the politics of populism and develop an agenda which meets BME needs.

With this in mind a public event has been called for BME people to scrutinise the candidates. This is your opportunity to hear candidates’ views on:

  • Bradford’s economy
  • Immigration policy
  • Community relations
  • Stop and Search
  • ‘War on Terror’
  • Unemployment, Health & Education

Panelists include:

  • Marsha Singh – Labour
  • David Hall-Matthews – Liberal Democrat
  • Arshad Ali – Respect
  • Zahid Iqbal – Conservative

The Bradford West event is part of a series of hustings meetings organised nationally. For more information and to download a copy of the Manifesto visit: http://www.racequalitypolicy.co.uk

Book early as places are limited.
