For a while now, the Angry Workers of the World collective have been living, working, and struggling in West London, particularly in the warehouse sector, and their work has been interesting to watch from a distance. Now they’re launching a new aspect of their project: a West London workers’ newspaper, which they want to distribute around workplaces and jobcentres in the local area. As they put it:
“This year we want to start publishing and circulating 2,000 copies of a local newspaper, mainly in front of warehouses, food processing plants, local hospitals and job centres. The local workers are predominantly from Eastern Europe and South Asia. We hope that the monthly distribution of the newspaper will help in setting up an information and solidarity network, including through social events such as film screenings etc.
How can we collaborate?
We are eager to exchange experiences with individuals and collectives which engage in similar activities of regular political propaganda and analysis of the difficulties of workers’ self-organisation.
We need information about struggles abroad, with a focus on warehouse and logistics work. If you have any first- or second-hand reports concerning this sector, please write to us (in any of the languages into which we have translated this letter).”
You can read the first issue of their paper here, and if you’d be interested in collaborating, whether you live in West London or further afield, you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
