Today in Parliament there is a debate and celebration of 50 years of pride.

Unfortunately I cannot now speak in the debate as I have tested positive for Covid but here is a snippet of what I was going to say!

Thanks to @pinknews for the write up of yesterday's #NotSafeToBeMe protest.

Government are failing our LGBTQ+ community - there is just no justification for refusing to protect trans people from abhorrent conversion practices.

.@DominicRaab once said food bank users are not in poverty but have a cash flow problem.

He also wanted to abolish the minimum wage for workers aged under 21 & scrap employment rights for agency workers.

This out of touch Tory gvmt is not on the side of working people. #PMQs

This Govt is failing trans & non-binary people.

Today I joined @TransActivismUK in Parliament Square for the #NotSafeToBeMe protest - I stand firmly with our trans & non-binary siblings in calling for a trans-inclusive ban on conversion therapy.

Instead of trying to resolve the rail dispute the Tories are using it as another excuse to attack trade unions my piece for @LabourList https://labourlist.org/2022/06/breaking-strikes-using-agency-workers-is-recklessly-gambling-with-public-safety/

The #BarristerStrike is a culmination of years of funding cuts - during a single year of the pandemic barristers earnings from legal aid collapsed by 23% with no help from the govt to mitigate massive loss of income.

Nice write up @shieldsgazette #JarrowRebel

An honour to pay tribute to 7 Men of Jarrow, banished to Australia in 1832 after objecting to poor working conditions at their colliery - an important reminder why trade unions were formed in the first place✊

A busy day today on the picket line at Newcastle supporting the @RMTunion
and speaking at Jarrow Rebel festival

Jarrow has a long proud history of fighting for better living standards and standing up for workers rights and I am proud to continue in that tradition.

#solidarity✊

It was a pleasure to speak and attend Jarrow Rebel Town Festival today alongside my great friend, @jeremycorbyn. It was lovely to see so many people attending this event. Thank you to the organisers for all their hard work putting together an excellent day.

This is a huge step backwards for abortion rights that will disproportionately impact women with the least resources.

Solidarity to all those impacted by this awful verdict.

It is great to see community groups benefitting from £411,625 of National Lottery funding in the Jarrow constituency, including Community Voice who plan to establish a network of paid ‘Peer Enablers’ & volunteers to assist people with physical sensory and learning disabilities.

I’m looking forward to the Jarrow Rebel Town festival tomorrow with @jeremycorbyn & others.

It’s a time to mark Jarrow’s role in the history of Britain’s industrial relations since the 1830s & to commemorate the ‘Seven Men of Jarrow’.

See you there! 👊

This Government is planning to boost City bosses’ pay whilst demanding “wage restraint” for everyone else.

Y’day I asked Boris Johnson when he is going to stop giving meaningless sound bites & instead support working people many of whom are struggling.👇

https://www.shieldsgazette.com/news/opinion/columnists/kate-osborne-the-government-is-playing-politics-with-the-rail-workers-dispute-3741805

At #PMQs I asked @BorisJohnson when he will take action to support workers - no answer.

Network Rail's Andrew Haines gets 20x pay of a train guard.

Royal Mail's Simon Thompson on 23x more than average postie.

It's time we fought back, solidarity to all those taking action.

TODAY in Wakefield #VoteLabour @simonlightwood

Your vote could boot Boris out of Downing St and deliver a fresh start for Wakefield.

Polls are open until 10pm and you don’t need your polling card or ID to vote.

Ministers planning to boost City bosses pay whilst workers struggle to cope with the worst cost of living crisis in history.

@BorisJohnson had no answer to my Q instead attacking me for standing up for workers.

Tories are on side of bankers not people who are suffering. #PMQs

I’ve just been on @mrjamesob show on @LBC talking about this week’s #RailStrikes with @theousherwood.

The @RMTunion have my full support and I’m proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with workers on the picket line.

Listen here. 🔈👇

Solidarity with those on the picket lines.

This is a crisis entirely of the Government’s making.

The workers don’t want strikes. The unions don’t want strikes. The public don’t want strikes.

They demand better.

Bromley picket this morning - workers have had real terms pay cuts for decades and are now facing a cost of living crisis, food poverty and energy bill rises - all political choices of this Government.

Grant Shapps should get round the table with the @RMTunion.

#Solidarity

On the picket line at Bromley.

I'm a trade unionist, I will always stand on the side of the workers.

Solidarity @rmtunion
#TubeStrike
#railstrike

The @UKLabour was formed by the trade union movement to give working people a political voice

Workers face a cost of living crisis. Rail workers @rmtunion are fighting cuts to pay, job, pensions & conditions

Come what may, I will be on a picket line supporting workers tomorrow https://twitter.com/siennamarla/status/1538939029315624961

EXCLUSIVE: Labour front benchers have been told by the party leadership that they are banned from picket lines this week amid rail strikes: https://www.politicshome.com/news/article/labour-front-benchers-banned-from-picket-lines-amid-rail-strikes

I’ve just met frontline NHS workers after they handed in the @KeepNHSpublic petition calling on Boris Johnson not to scrap free covid testing.

It has over 400,000 signatures. ✊👇

This week I'm proud to support #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek.

Cervical screening (smear tests) can save lives, but 1 in 3 do not attend when invited.

If you have any questions or concerns, follow @JoTrust for information, tips, and support.

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasn’t spent a single second in talks to avert it since March.

Time is running out. The Tories must get round the table and sort this out.

On the streets of London today with @The_TUC, TU’s and 1000’s of workers who #DemandBetter and need an end to the #CostofLivingCrisis.

Join a union! ✊

I am so pleased to have a wonderful endorsement for the @YourMmtm slate from a great comrade, one who has been part of @jeremycorbyn 's team and who worked relentlessly to elect a socialist Labour government. Thank you @Marshajane ✊🏼🚩
