... is a regular socialist newsletter for Hackney. It used to be called Hackney Solidarity, but we have relaunched it as Hackney Socialist Unity following Janine Booth and Charlie McDonald’s recent candidature for Hackney Council. Initially set up by Marxist group Workers’ Liberty, the newsletter also involves other socialists.

The mainstream media is owned and dominated by big corporations. Working-class people need our own voice: we need publications which report and explain issues from our point of view.

The main articles are on housing, including reports from local estates. Other subjects include class sizes at the local primary school, news from local trade unions, a view from a Hackney teenager, and opinions on the recent General Election.

The future of our estates still hangs in the balance, as the Council continues to attack us, and we as a community – through the Tenants’ & Residents’ Association – do our best to stick up for ourselves and our rights.

One thing we can be sure of – the Council does not have residents’ interests at heart, and the ‘consultation’ process is a sham. We’ve had meeting after meeting, jargon upon jargon, one broken promise after another.

School Gates Closed?

It’s great to have a new secondary school on your doorstep, isn’t it? Especially as it is non-selective, mixed and non-religious, which many parents and kids prefer.
