Raising campaign funds for Tanushka Marah, an independent prospective parliamentary candidate in Hove & Portslade for 2024 general election.

by tanushkamarahcampaign in Brighton, Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

I am an award-winning theatre director and mother of two who felt the need to take a stand against UK complicity in genocide. As a British Palestinian, I want to see an end of UK support for Israeli apartheid and the occupation of Palestine.

I am standing as an independent prospective parliamentary candidate against Labour MP Peter Kyle, who is vice chair of Labour Friends of Israel. Labour has abandoned support for a Palestinian state and opposed ending UK arms supplies to Israel during its war on Gaza.

The funds we raise will go to support this campaign to reach as many voters as possible in Hove and Portslade. Please note: You DO NOT have to pay a tip to Crowdfunder - under the slide click "enter custom amount and type 0"!

I have mentored young people in creating theatre in Brighton and Hove for 15 years, opening access to theatre and culture to children from low-income families.

I will run a grassroots-based election campaign, opposing cuts and privatisation of public services, and action on the climate emergency.

I support improved youth services, a fully public NHS, and affordable, secure homes for all to tackle the housing crisis.

Faith in our 2-party politics has collapsed - with in-work poverty, extreme inequality and billions spent on wars abroad while people here are suffering and their views are ignored. 

I am joining forces with independent candidates across the UK to challenge the Tories and Keir Starmer's Labour and bring hope by taking this stand.
