Tuesday 12th Jan saw the first day of the National Junior Doctors series of strike days. There was a good turn out of support on the picket line outside of The Great western Hospital in Swindon. The Junior Doctors were joined by The Green Party and by The Swindon Peoples Assembly who showed solidarity with the strikers.
On Saturday 21st November there was a small (around 50) protest, march and rally on behalf of the Refugees Welcome Campaign. There were various groups attending, from Swindon Anarchists to The Green Party. The one thing they all had in common was that they wanted to show solidarity with the refugees and that more should be allowed into the country.
Like the previous night it was a nightmare photographing at the Hustings last night.
Last night it was the turn of the candidates for The South Swindon Seat. It was another interesting evening. There was a certain amount of heckling from the audience but it was all well behaved, no seats ripped up and thrown this time.
The candidate for South Swindon are Anne Snelgrove for Labour. Robert Buckland for Conservative. Damon Hooton Lib Dem, John Short UKIP and Talis Kimberley-Fairbourn for the Green Party.
