A contingement from Berwick & District attended the demo in Newcastle today marching with the Trades Council banner.
Statement from "Red Labour"
Today 1400 people from marched in Newcastle for the 'Defend Corbyn: No to Austerity, No to Racism' demonstration. It was a real celebration of democracy. We made our voice heard. Corbyn and the ideas we all share are here to stay! We would like to thank all supporting organisations, and our speakers (listed below), but we would also like to thank every single one of you who marched in unity. We are the people, the people for Corbyn. For the people always. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn't make today, however he sent a little message.
