Peace & Justice Project hosts RMT strike solidarity fundraiser

On Friday, the Peace & Justice Project's Music For The Many campaign hosted an event at The Jago in Dalston.

The event, held at one of East London's leading grassroots music venues, was well-attended by supporters and trade unionists raised vital funds for the RMT's ongoing dispute fund and will support workers fighting for fair pay and conditions on Britain's railways.

Speaking at the event, our founder Jeremy Corbyn, said: "We must make sure the government does more to to protect creative community spaces like The Jago so that we can find and nurture and support the talent in every single on of us. It's music for the many and socialism for all!"

The Peace & Justice Project's Music For The Many campaign was set up to support grassroots music venues, like The Jago, in securing a sustainable future through government funds and the creation of a levy on the corporate sponsors of larger venues. Since launching in April, the campaign has held sold-out gigs with HotWax and Noah and the Loners in London and Brighton, with more to be announced soon.

For the price of no more than a coffee a month, you can help us find, highlight, and end injustices at home and around the world.
