The big November 30 strike is drawing near. Rents and prices are rising, unemployment is going through the roof and at the same time wages are falling, benefits are slashed and people are being kicked out of their homes. The NHS is being sold-off while public services are decimated, schools and universities wrecked and the poor excluded. Officially these strikes are about pensions, but we all know it’s about a lot more than that.
We'll be keeping this post updated with plans for Brighton as we get them. So far:
- Around 20 unions and counting will be on strike (see this blog post at libcom.org for a list)
- We hope to make a Google map of picket lines in the city, as we did for the June 30th strikes
- We've made a display in the window of the Cowley Club in London Road promoting the strikes (see pic)
- SF propaganda for the strikes is available here to download or from brighton[AT]solfed.org.uk
