Thursday

THURSDAY:

Influence the electoral debate

  • Electoral candidates: Find out who your local electoral candidates are, and contact them about your concerns about austerity. We have some sample letters available here.
  • Target: Make sure your concerns are targeted to the remit of the elections. You can find out about the London Mayor here; the Scottish Parliamnet here; and the Welsh Assembly here.
  • Other media: Call into phone-ins about the General Elections and ask a question. Some suggestions here. Find another excuse to contact your local radio station to let them know about the impact of austerity and about PAA – even if just to ask for a song from local DJ!
  • Make a note: Look out for any upcoming events, debates, hustings or phone-ins relating to the election. Hold a brainstorming session with some colleagues or friends as to the questions you want to ask at these events when they come up.
