Support Strike Action: 10th May

Quite rightly May has got off to a cracking start with great May Day events across the UK, the NHS Rally on 7th, national pensions strikes on 10th, the GMB Remploy lobby of Parliament on 9th (I'll be there and posting an item later in the week) and plenty more to come.

What with Labour's impressive local government performance last week and the generally poor standing of the Coalition at the moment, now is the time for the labour movement to be visible and championing all of those directly effected by the austerity programme.

Even police officers will be mounting a show of disgruntlement with the Coalition later this month - things must be bad! But, as I have argued before, we should attempt to seek some solidarity with police officers and certainly especially police staff as the privatisation of the criminal justice sector continues apace and threatens to disrupt the fabric civil society in ways as yet unprecedented - read the post a few days ago on privatisation and you'll get the gist.
