Workers In Struggle

A Solidarity Rally with the Durham Teaching Assistants will be held at 7pm tomorrow, at the Miners' Hall, Redhills, Durham.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service is preparing to sack all 1250 of frontline firefighters, and then to re-engage only those who agreed to a new system of 12-hour shifts.

Would you want the fireman who was trying to rescue you from a burning building to have been on shift for 11 and a half hours?

Bringing us to the junior doctors.

The Government needs to keep the consultants at least broadly on side, in order to cover for their striking subordinates.

It has just burnt that bridge today.


  1. If you had a car, they'd have to give you your own parking space at Redhills.

    1. Alas, I am not going to be able to make it this evening. Too much work, the beginnings of the lurgy, and my mother's birthday. Not necessarily in that order. But it promises to be good.

      And note that, of course, that is where it is being held, like last week's rally for the junior doctors. The bedrock is always the Durham Miners' Association.

  2. You were missed, you are a complete legend in this campaign.
