Tower Hamlets Respect has stepped up efforts to take our message of a better borough into the community in recent weeks.

Today Councillor Abjol Miah, Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Bethnal Green and Bow, was joined by local residents and activists as they went door-to-door on Jamaica Street in Stepney Green, delivering hundreds of our new Respect national newspaper.

Councillor Miah spoke to residents who said they were fed up of being ignored by the New Labour-run council and wanted change. Councillor Miah said:

People here have been taken for granted by the council and the government for too long. All we want are decent homes, neighbourhoods and facilities, with proper opportunities for employment and education. But instead we get dodgy housing associations, car-owners penalised and services eroded. Respect is standing to offer everyone the voice they deserve.

The activity followed last week’s day of action on the Malmesbury Estate in Bow, where every home received a free copy of the newspaper.

Can you spare an hour to help Respect win for Tower Hamlets?

Further days of action are planned in the coming weeks. For more information and to volunteer – even for just an hour – see Volunteer With Us.
