The CLP packed out the Maharani Restaurant on Clapham High Street on Monday 2nd December to raise funds for Bell's campaign. Speeches in support of Bell and the prospect of a transformative government under Jeremy Corbyn were given by John McDonnell (via video link), Kier Starmer and Jack Hopkins. Prizes included a manifesto signed by Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott and Kier Starmer and a batch of Jeremy's home made Jam (also via video link)!
On Sunday 17th November, Bell was joined by Diane Abbott, Shami Chakrabarti, Barry Gardiner and Human Rights Lawyer Jacqui Mckenzie to launch her campaign to become Streatham's next MP. There was such a massive turnout of activists that the Roupell Park Community Centre on Brixton Hill couldn't contain them all. After the launch, everyone went out to canvass local residents.

At a packed meeting, Streatham members came together to listen to speeches and Q&As by three candidates to run as our Parliamentary candidate. We're grateful to Jennifer Brathwaite, Marcia Cameron and Bell Ribeiro-Addy for speaking so powerfully, and we're delighted that the membership selected Bell.
This selection comes not a moment too soon as we are now in a General Election.
Please help get Bell elected!
