The Amazon rainforest is the largest in the world and is a vital carbon store that slows down the pace of global warming. But it’s on fire, threatening the lives of one million indigenous people and countless animals and plants. This is what a climate emergency looks like.

The chaos of Boris Johnson’s No Deal Brexit is real and threatening, as the leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier makes crystal clear. I've invited party leaders and senior backbenchers from across Parliament to meet to discuss all tactics available to prevent No Deal.
Politics should work for the millions, not the millionaires. Make a monthly gift to Labour and help fund our people-powered movement.
In the US, the cost of life-saving medicines is shockingly high. And if Boris Johnson drags Britain through a 'No Deal' Brexit, our NHS could be up for sale in a deal with Donald Trump. We can't afford to let Britain crash out without a deal. We can't trust Boris Johnson and Donald Trump with our NHS.
Britain’s workers need a pay rise so in government Labour will introduce a Real Living Wage of £10 per hour. And we’ll tackle runaway executive pay with an Excessive Pay Levy for the private sector and a 20:1 pay ratio for public sector. Because this 👇 is wrong.
The Tories rely on donations from their super-rich friends, hedge funds and bankers. We are the party who want to make politics work for the millions, not millionaires. Chip in and help fund our movement.
A General Election triggered by the Tory Brexit crisis puts our country at a crossroads, a once-in-a-generation chance for a real change of direction.
Labour will do everything necessary to stop a disastrous No Deal Brexit. Share this.
I appeared on Ridge on Sunday this morning to explain why cross-party MPs should rally behind the leader of the Opposition to call a general election and stop a no deal Brexit. “Our political, and I’ll say it again, our moral imperative is to stop a no deal Brexit. Boris Johnson is willing to allow that to happen, because he is completely shielded, and the people that he represents are completely shielded, from the effects.”
Our plan to stop a disastrous No Deal Brexit and let the people decide the future of our country.
We have to stop big money running our politics. Labour will ban donations to political parties from anyone not registered to pay tax in the UK. If you don't want to contribute to our public services, you shouldn't be able to influence our democracy.

For nine years we told the Tories that their police funding cuts were leaving communities exposed. Now they finally admit that their cuts have helped create a rising tide of violence. When they ignored the issue for almost a decade, how can the Tories now be trusted to keep our streets safe?
Police officers warned the Tories of the impact of their funding cuts, and the Tories said that they were ‘crying wolf’ and ‘scaremongering’. Now they admit that their cuts have helped create a ‘rising tide of violence’. Tory record on law and order? More crime; less police.

Mind the gap – between train ticket prices and people’s wages. Yet another rail hike means that the average train fares will increase by 40% by January. Labour will nationalise the railways and put passengers before profit. Make this reach its next destination and share with a friend 🚄
Two hundred years ago today, on St Peter’s Field in Manchester, armed cavalry charged into a crowd of peaceful protesters. At least 18 people were murdered in what became known as the Peterloo Massacre, among them children, a pregnant woman, and an Army veteran who had served in the Battle of Waterloo. Hundreds more were injured or mutilated. More than 60,000 working class men, women and children from Manchester and the surrounding towns had gathered to demand an end to child labour, low pay, and rule by the rich. The meeting had the feel of a huge community festival – full of families, with local bands playing music and speakers giving voice to the desire for change. The response from the authorities was carnage and bloodshed. They feared the people speaking up for themselves. As the shockwaves from the massacre reached across the world, the establishment and the Tory government closed ranks. They branded the protesters violent revolutionaries and clamped down on the newspapers that supported their cause. It was not the murderous cavalrymen who were later imprisoned, but the speakers who had addressed the crowd. But repression could not hold back the emerging working class movement. Survivors of Peterloo went on to help form the Chartists’ movement and the early Suffragette movement, campaigning for the right to vote for men and women respectively. This is our history. A direct line runs from Peterloo to the foundation of the Labour Party, which exists to represent the interests of the majority against the elite at the top. It’s why we use the slogan ‘For the many, not the few.’ It comes from Percy Shelley’s poem, The Masque of Anarchy, written in response to Peterloo about the power people have when they come together for change: Rise, like lions after slumber In unvanquishable number! Shake your chains to earth, like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you: Ye are many—they are few!

Happy A Level Results day! Congrats if you’ve made it into your chosen uni. Thanks to the Tories, you’ll have extortionate tuition fees and doubled interest rates on your student loans. Labour will abolish tuition fees, meaning you could be paying nothing for a quality education.

The current system of predicted grades gives the wealthy a leg up and penalises disadvantaged students and those from ethnic minority backgrounds. We'll overhaul university admissions so the system delivers social justice instead of reinforcing privilege.
