East Ham – Lois Austin

Lois has been an active campaigner for working class people’s rights since her teens. She has helped organise mass campaigns and demonstrations against racism and the right-wing Thatcher government. Lois was a founding member of the Stop the War Coalition, campaigning against the unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Today Lois campaigns locally and is a housing activist. She was a driving force behind The Stratford Academy Concerned Parents, which supported the teachers strike in 2012 by uniting staff, parents and the local community in Newham successfully stopping senior management’s cuts to teachers pay and the bullying of staff.

Lois is angry both at this rotten government making normal people suffer for the bankers’ crisis but also our local Labour Party for not standing up for the people of Newham. Last year Lois stood for Mayor of Newham on a program of, capping rents, rehousing the Focus E15 Mums locally in council housing, building council housing, ending the bedroom tax and against all cuts.
