Remembering Jo Cox MP

Plymouth Labour remembers Jo Cox who was tragically murdered this week. She was a tireless campaigner for our shared values, a believer in change and she died doing what all good MPs do, listening and speaking to constituents.

As a mark of respect and in memory of Jo Cox campaigning for the EU Referendum has been suspended by the Labour Party. Jo was a believer in the UK remaining part of the EU and we will be re-doubling our efforts to win the referendum on Monday, but not today.

Remembering Jo Cox

Last night a candle lighting vigil was held at Plymouth Labour in remembrance of Jo Cox. Members and supporters shared their feelings of loss, anger and grief and a moment of silence was held on the Hoe in memory of Jo. On behalf of Plymouth Labour we are sending our solidarity and love to Jo's husband Brendan, their two children and her local Labour Party and community.
