Vote RESPECT Wales
Huw Williams, RESPECT Wales candidate
The election on June 10th will see people in Wales given an opportunity
vote for RESPECT.
This is important as we will be the only party calling for the
immediate and unconditional withdrawal of UK and USA troops from Iraq.
Respect hopes to give a political voice to the anti war movement of
all its candidates have in some form or other played a consistent and
role. RESPECT nationally also has the widest and most diverse range of
candidates in terms of gender (50/50 split) and candidates from non
backgrounds. Another reason to vote RESPECT is that it will be the only
vote which does not pander to nationalism. For example Forward Wales
main election slogan is "Put Wales first"- this is the same as Plaid
Cymru and can only be interpreted as we need to put Wales (rich and
poor) ahead of other countries because we are Welsh.
RESPECT is an internationalist party and offers a real alternative to
New Labour. Lastly I feel it was shame that forward Wales voted not to
have an electoral alliance with RESPECT as was outlined at the RESPECT
meeting in Cardiff by Dr Marek many months ago and which RESPECT member
voted for in the name of maximising the left vote.
Nevertheless I am of the opinion that RESPECT can start the process
giving those people in Wales who are sick of the official politics a
chance to register there feelings in a clear way.
