Here is what our non-party-political friends in WinVisible (Women with visible and invisible disabilities) sent out:
GWS is non-party political but we are part of the movement called into being by the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party – anti-sexist, anti-racist, welcoming of immigrants and asylum seekers, and against austerity, starvation wages, war and other environmental degradation. We are outraged that the one Labour leader directly elected by the membership is attacked by a parliamentary coup. We’ll be at this demonstration tonight at 6pm,(1) Parliament Square, to show support for Jeremy Corbyn. (Nearest tube: Westminster.) Please join us.
Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey’s article in The Guardian which clearly makes the case for uniting behind Jeremy Corbyn in the face of the resignations of the last 24 hours. Jeremy Corbyn best represents the views and interests of workers, unemployed workers and trade unionists across the country and this support was shown in the overwhelming vote that saw him elected as Labour leader just 10 months ago. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/26/labour-mutineers-betraying-national-interest?CMP=share_btn_fb

Meanwhile, London Green Left blogger Mike Shaughnessy points out that disaffection of working class British voters with the Labour Party is the fault of Tony Blair, not Jeremy Corbyn.(2)
