Croydon Central – April Ashley

I have been a trade unionist in local government
for 20 years fighting for better terms and conditions for union members  and against the constant attacks on our living standards. The Tories  onslaught of austerity has been the worst attack on members that I can
remember with everyone in fear of losing their jobs and those in work  relying on benefits and payday loans just to get by. No one can live on  zero-hours contracts. They are barely surviving. The most vulnerable in  society are being ground in the dirt with welfare cuts, the bedroom tax  and benefit sanctions.

Working people have had enough of austerity.  Austerity means as we get poorer and local services are cut the Tories  ensure their friends the ‘1%’ get richer.

I am standing to show there  is an alternative to austerity. Unfortunately, Labour is just  ‘austerity-lite’ and we will still be facing terrible attacks to public  services under a Labour government. Their priority is paying down the  deficit which will mean us paying the deficit instead of the banks,  rich tax evaders and the PFI swindlers.

The millionaire backed UKIP  are scapegoating immigrants for the economic problems, which seems an  easy answer, instead of blaming the real culprits – the banks.

I  represent black members on UNISON’s National Executive Committee  (personal capacity) and I am fighting against the increased racism and  Islamaphobia in society. This is an attempt to divide and rule working  people while the rich laugh all the way to the bank.

The only people  that have benefitted under austerity are the millionaires. Food banks  have trebled. I am really pleased to be standing as a TUSC candidate to  campaign for an alternative to austerity.
