Yesterday, the government invited unions in for talks. Today, it is legislating to override their right to strike. Any government that forces people to work against their will has no interest in reasonable dialogue. Stop posturing and give workers the pay rise they deserve.

Nobody votes to take strike action unless it’s an act of desperation. Today, I asked the Tories to stop their draconian assault on workers’ rights, and face up to the issues of poverty, inequality and stress they have created.

Heartbroken to hear that multiple firefighters who saved lives at Grenfell have been diagnosed with cancer. I will never forget the disgusting way they were scapegoated for government failings. Our demands for the safety of residents & workers — for justice — continue to grow.

As billionaires meet atop their mountain in Davos, 800 million people across the globe are going to bed hungry. It’s time for a new economic model that redistributes wealth, ownership and power from those who wield it to those who need it.

Tomorrow, I’ll be joining human rights defenders from around the world to resist the extradition of Julian Assange and stand up for press freedom everywhere. Exposing the truth is not a crime. Register for the Belmarsh Tribunal here:

It was a pleasure to catch up with @BernieSanders  and @RashidaTlaib  today. Thank you for building a multi-racial working-class movement that has inspired so many people to fight for each other. Our struggle for a more equal, sustainable and peaceful world goes on.

Refugees are not our enemies. They are not criminals. They are human beings. Let's open our arms, hearts and minds to those just trying to survive. Support@CalaisAppeal  here:

US health insurance giant, Centene, is the single largest provider of NHS primary care in England. Privatisation is the cause of — not the solution to — the NHS crisis. Stop wasting money on private contracts and start investing in a fully-public NHS instead.

It takes an Amazon warehouse worker more than 8 weeks to earn what CEO Jeff Bezos makes in a single second. Today, they are taking strike action for the first time in the UK over pay and conditions. Solidarity with @GMB_union  members making history.

On Holocaust Memorial Day, we remember the 6 million Jews, and millions more, murdered by the Nazi regime. At today's moving event in Islington, we pledged to combat antisemitism wherever it is found, and build a society of love, equality & peace for all.


If you're not sure who to vote for, watch this.

How to destroy the NHS: Step 1. Run it into the ground with austerity. Step 2. Exploit the crisis to empower the private sector. Step 3. Abolish the principle of universal health care. End privatisation, support striking workers and save our NHS.

Johnson is the third PM to fall in six years because there is no solution to the deep economic and environmental crisis we face that picks our pockets and steals our future. Real change isn't a new Tory PM but a new politics to redistribute wealth and power.

It is shameful the UK Government won't condemn Trump. Now is the time to speak up for justice and equality. #BlackLivesMatter  #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd 

Polling station: come over Me: I can’t, it’s too cold outside Polling station: Boris Johnson is going to sell off our NHS Me:

. thought that with the backing of the billionaires and the corporate elite, she could take your vote for granted.

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

When politicians resort to blaming immigrants, you know they've run out of ideas.

The cost of meeting nurses’ demand for an inflation-busting pay rise: £1.6 billion. The cost of Rishi Sunak’s bank tax giveaways: £7.3 billion. If we can afford handouts for the rich, we can afford to meet the basic needs of those who keep this country afloat.

The people telling you we can't solve the climate crisis helped create it. The people telling you they won't sell off our NHS can afford private healthcare. The people telling you we can’t scrap tuition fees went to university for free. They are not on your side.
