Jeremy Corbyn’s speech at Glastonbury seemed to go down very well. He covered many subjects that are in the public eye right now, including racism, asylum seekers and financial inequality.

Here’s the full transcript:

don’t go Michael don’t go
0:22
[Applause]
0:29
can you give it out for Michael Eavis
0:31
please Michael I’ve got a gift for you
0:37
here it says Michael the inspiration
0:41
that gave space to millions through
0:44
Glastonbury Thank You Michael Eavis for
0:47
all you’ve done I want to say thank you
0:55
to Michael for lending us his farm for
0:59
giving the space all those years ago for
1:01
people to come here enjoy music enjoy
1:05
good company and enjoy inspiring thought
1:08
Michael you paved the way for the space
1:12
for all of us you brought the spirit of
1:18
music you brought the spirit of love you
1:21
brought a spirit of ideas and you
1:23
brought a spirit of great messages and
1:26
if you can see that fir look on the wall
1:29
right over there that surrounds this
1:32
wonderful festival and as a message on
1:35
that wall for president Donald Trump
1:38
[Applause]
1:41
and you know what it says build bridges
1:46
not walls dunno
1:57
politics is actually about everyday life
2:01
it’s about all of us what we dream what
2:05
we want what we achieve and what we want
2:07
for everybody else and what was
2:09
fascinating about the last seven weeks
2:11
of election campaigning around Britain
2:14
is to know what the commentariat got it
2:17
wrong
2:18
the elites got it wrong politics is
2:25
about the lives of all of us and the
2:30
wonderful campaign that I was involved
2:32
with I was so proud to lead brought a
2:36
lot of people back into politics because
2:39
they believed there was something on
2:41
offer for them
2:45
but what was even more inspiring was a
2:49
number of young people who got involved
2:52
for the very first time because they
2:59
were fed up with being denigrated fed up
3:01
with being told they don’t matter fed up
3:04
with being told they never participate
3:06
and utterly fed up with being told that
3:09
their generation was going to pay more
3:12
to get less in education in health in
3:15
housing in pensions and everything else
3:17
that they should accept low wages nation
3:22
accept insecurity and they should see it
3:25
as just part of life well it didn’t
3:29
quite work out like that did it
3:31
and you know what that politics that got
3:36
out of the box is not going back in any
3:39
box because we’re they’re demanding and
3:42
achieving something very different in
3:45
our society and in our lives there’s a
3:49
number of things they’re very simple
3:50
very basic questions we should ask
3:52
ourselves is it right that so many
3:56
people in our country have no home to
3:59
live in and only a street to sleep on is
4:04
it right that so many people are
4:07
frightened of where they live at the
4:09
moment having seen the horrors of what
4:12
happened in Grantville tower is it right
4:17
that so many people live in such poverty
4:21
in a society surrounded by such riches
4:25
no it obviously is not and is it right
4:29
that European nationals living in this
4:32
country making their contribution to our
4:35
society working in our hospitals schools
4:38
and universities don’t know if they’re
4:41
going to be allowed to remain here I say
4:44
they all must stay and they all must be
4:46
part of our world
4:48
and part of our community because what
4:55
festivals are about what this festival
4:57
is about is about coming together this
5:02
festival was envisaged as being for
5:04
music yes but also for environment and
5:08
for peace you heard the message from EP
5:11
Thompson earlier on and what a wonderful
5:13
man he was do you know what when people
5:16
across the world think the same
5:18
cooperate the same maybe in different
5:21
languages in different faiths in
5:23
different cultures peace is possible and
5:26
must be achieved and you know what let’s
5:35
stop the delegation of refugees people
5:38
looking for a place of safety in a cruel
5:41
and dangerous world they are all they
5:46
are all human women beings just like all
5:49
of us here today looking for a place of
5:52
safety and looking to make their
5:55
contribution to the future of all of us
5:58
so let’s support them in their hour of
6:01
need not see them as a threat and a
6:04
danger but let’s also look at
6:09
instability and problems around the
6:11
world and tackle the causes of war the
6:16
greed from natural resources the denial
6:20
of human rights the irrational
6:22
imprisonment of political opponents
6:24
let’s look to build a world of human
6:27
rights peace justice and democracy all
6:30
over the planet
6:31
[Applause]
6:35
this placing Glastonbury is truly
6:39
wonderful I remember coming to this area
6:41
as a child being taken up to Glastonbury
6:44
Tor by my mum and dad and I thought what
6:47
a magical area is because there’s
6:49
something very special about it it’s a
6:51
place where people come together and
6:52
they achieve things we have a democracy
6:57
because people laid down their lives
7:00
that we might get the
7:01
right to vote because women lay down
7:04
their lives that women would get the
7:06
right to vote at the time of the first
7:08
world war that determination of the
7:12
collective won us won us all the
7:15
principle of health care as a human
7:18
right for all of us nothing was given
7:21
from above nothing was given from above
7:25
by the elites and the powerful it was
7:27
only ever gained from below by the
7:30
masses of people demanding something
7:32
better demanding their share of the
7:35
wealth and the cake that is created so
7:40
it is about bringing those ideas
7:43
together it is about the unity that we
7:46
achieve and we achieve inspiration
7:50
through lots of things in every child
7:53
there is a poem in every child as a
7:56
painting in every child there is music
7:58
and you know what as people get older
8:00
they get a bit embarrassed about that
8:01
who can’t be thinking that sort of thing
8:04
can’t be writing poetry no I want all
8:07
our children to be inspired all our
8:10
children to have the right to learn
8:12
music to write poetry and to paint in
8:14
the way that they want and this festival
8:18
is wonderful festival with all its
8:21
stages in all its music gives that
8:23
chance of that opportunity to so many
8:25
young musicians that they can achieve
8:28
and inspire us all and I’m proud to be
8:31
here for that I’m proud to be here to
8:34
support the peace movement and its
8:36
activities here and the way that message
8:38
gets across but I’m also very proud to
8:41
be here for the environmental causes
8:43
that go with it
8:44
we cannot go on destroying this planet
8:48
through global warming through pollution
8:50
through destruction of habitat through
8:53
pollution of our seas and our rivers we
8:56
have to live on this planet there is
8:58
only one planet not even Donald Trump
9:01
believes there’s another planet
9:02
somewhere else and so let us protect the
9:07
planet we’ve got use the tech
9:09
nology we have to manage and control the
9:13
use of our natural resources that the
9:16
planet is here for future generations in
9:18
better state than it is at the present
9:21
time but it’s also about our creativity
9:29
creativity that brought us the things
9:31
I’ve talked about
9:32
but that creativity together can be a
9:36
tool for getting a message across a
9:39
message that racism is wrong divisive
9:42
and evil within our society racism in
9:48
any form divides weakens and denies us
9:52
the skills and brilliance of people who
9:55
are being discriminated against in just
9:57
the same way that sexism does be it in
10:00
lower pay for women less opportunities
10:03
for women or less aspirations we need to
10:06
challenge sexism in any form within our
10:08
society and to challenge homophobia to
10:15
challenge all the discrimination that
10:17
goes on and to ensure that that society
10:22
we want to build is one that is
10:24
inclusive for all I want to see a world
10:28
where there is real opportunity for
10:30
everybody within our society that means
10:34
sharing the wealth out in every part of
10:36
our country and looking to global
10:39
policies that actually share the wealth
10:41
not glory in the levels of injustice and
10:44
inequality where the rich seem to get
10:46
inexorably richer and the vast majority
10:50
continually lose out and those that are
10:53
desperately poor live on the margins of
10:55
society euphemistically known as the
10:57
fourth world surely we can as
11:01
intelligent human beings do things
11:03
differently and do things better and
11:06
when we’re here today in Glastonbury we
11:08
are doing things differently we’re doing
11:10
things better and we’re seeing
11:16
and there are many people that we learn
11:20
from in our lives we learn from our
11:23
friends we learn from our parents we
11:25
learn from our teachers we learn from
11:28
those that have written music or written
11:30
poetry for us it’s that sense of
11:33
unlocking the potential in all of us
11:35
that I find so inspiring and I’m
11:38
inspired by many poets and many people
11:40
and I think we should adopt a maxim in
11:43
life that everyone we meet is unique
11:45
everyone we meet knows something we
11:47
don’t know is slightly different to us
11:50
in some ways don’t see them as a threat
11:52
don’t see them as an enemy
11:53
see them as a source of knowledge a
11:56
source of friendship and a source of
11:58
inspiration and if I may I’d like to
12:05
quote one of my favorite poets Percy
12:08
Bysshe Shelley who wrote in the early
12:10
19th century many many poems and
12:14
traveled extensively around Europe but
12:17
the line I like the best is this one
12:19
raised like lions after slumber in
12:22
unvanquishable number shake your chains
12:26
to earth like Jew which in sleep had
12:29
fallen on you ye are many they are few
12:43
I quote Shelley because he inspired like
12:48
so many others do I’m proud to be at
12:51
Glastonbury because it inspires so many
12:54
to music festivals all over the country
12:56
let us be together and recognize another
13:00
world is possible if we come together to
13:05
understand that understand the power
13:07
we’ve got and achieve that decent better
13:10
society where everyone matters and loans
13:14
poverty-stricken people are enriched in
13:17
their lives and the rest of us are made
13:19
secure by their enrichment thank you
13:22
very much
13:22
Justin Bri thank you everybody thank you
13:27
