We have been notified by the International Brigade Memorial Trust that Southwark News and Southwark Historical Society have drawn up a shortlist of former residents nominated to have a ‘Blue Plaque’ dedicated to them.
The shortlist includes Jack Jones, former General Secretary of the TGWU, pensioners leader, International Brigader who fought in the Spanish Civil War and IBMT Life President. There’s now a public vote to choose the successful nominee.
You don’t have to be a resident of Southwark to vote, so all supporters can take part. All you have to do is email Southwark News saying you’d like to vote for Jack Jones to get the 2013 Blue Plaque.
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also vote in Southwark libraries. The closing date is 31st October.
Vote now and ask others to vote as well. Over 12,000 people voted last year.
