Respect press conference with George Galloway MP and Councillor Abjol Miah

 

2.30pm, Prithi Restaurant, corner of Brick Lane and Hanbury Street

Tomorrow Friday 20th November

The press conference will be covering two issues:

1) The mayoral referendum triggered by petition yesterday. We know of no other mayoral referendum triggered by petition, which required 5% of the registered Tower Hamlets electorate to sign the petition. It was successful in the face of official opposition from both the Labour and Conservative parties. Now Respect intends to lead the campaign, embracing members of all parties and none, for a Yes vote in the referendum, likely to be held on February, in the face of official opposition from Labour Lib Dems and Tories.

2) The visit to Bangladesh of George Galloway, Councillor Abjol Miah and a delegation of someĀ 24 people in total from the Respect Party.

The visit begins on Tuesday 24th November. George Galloway and Councillor Miah will be meeting the Prime Minister, the former Prime Minister and the former President of Bangladesh, visiting various places in Sylhet and going to the site on the border where the Tipaimukh Dam project will control the flow of water into Sylhet.
