Galloway to speak in East Ham this month

12:09 07 February 2013

George Galloway is due to speak at a public meeting being held by Newham People’s Alliance in East Ham this month.

The former MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, who is now the MP for Bradford, relaunched his Respect Party in Newham in December.

But it is understood organisers have found a new venue after the original venue booked for next Wednesday, was cancelled.

An events organiser for the Respect Party said Lee Jasper, a former adviser to previous London Mayor Ken Livingstone, Yvonne Ridley, a war correspondent who converted to Islam after being captured by the Taliban, and Islamic academic Mufti Shah Sadruddin may also be speaking at the event.

The pair also spoke at Respect’s relaunch where George Galloway criticised Newham Council’s decision to reject plans for a new mosque at the Riverine Centre, in West Ham.

The event, dubbed “Newham Spring”, will take place at 7pm, on Wednesday February 13, Empire, 593 Barking Road, East Ham, E6 2LW.
