Two articles have come to our attention today — one from the International Business Times focusses attention on our Paris 4 Bernie friends across the Channel; another in the British leftist weekly Solidarity covers our most recent public event in London. Seen any media coverage of our activities? Let us know!
Over 100 people filled the hall in the headquarters of Unite the Union, Britain’s largest trade union, for a panel discussion on the Bernie Sanders campaign following Iowa. The panelists included Larry Sanders (Bernie’s older brother), Owen Jones (author and journalist), writer Travis Mooney, and Eric Lee, the editor of LabourStart. Here are some photos (credit: Stanley Leung) from the event:
Last night we released this season’s must-have fashion accessory: the London for Bernie t-shirts.
Click here to order them — they’re selling out fast! (Unlike Bernie, who won’t sell out, ever.)
A special thanks to Diana and Beth for designing and organizing production of the shirts.
Wouldn’t that be a great headline on the morning of Tuesday, February 2nd?
Whether Bernie wins or just does very well (and I can’t think of a third possibility right now), join us to discuss what happened — and what happens next.
We’re meeting on Tuesday, February 2nd at 6:30 PM at Unite the Union in Holborn. Our speakers are journalist and author Paul Mason and Bernie’s older brother, Larry Sanders. Attendance is free, but we’re limited in the number of tickets we can offer (and over 100 people have signed up so far). Please make sure you’ve signed up to attend here. And please spread the word – invite others!
If having the chance to ask questions and discuss politics with Paul Mason and Larry Sanders isn’t enough to draw you to Holborn on a cold, rainy February evening, how about this: On Tuesday night we’ll be offering up the long-awaited, official, soon-to-be-collectors-items London for Bernie T-shirts. These colorful shirts, designed by our team and printed here in London, are a must-have item for fashionable progressives.
And finally, we remind you that running our campaign here in the UK costs us money. Oddly enough, hedge funds and investment bankers aren’t lining up to donate money to our campaign. We need your help to win. You can donate by credit or debit card, or PayPal, here.
This poster, produced by London artist Aled Lewis, is being called Bernie Sanders’ “Hope poster” and compared to the iconic image of Barack Obama from 2008.
The phrase comes from a rally held in Iowa earlier this month.
“The question is, who is the stronger candidate?” Sanders asked.
When the crowd began chanting his name, Sanders replied, “Not me. Us.”
Aled talks more about his image on his Facebook page.
