The polls have closed, the struggle goes on – worker and migrant solidarity action over the next few days

Although your chance to have your say in whether the UK should stay in the European Union or not has finished, the broader questions about what the society we live in will look like are still far from settled. There are ongoing struggles and conflicts on all kinds of levels, and there will be quite a few chances to get stuck into them over the next few days.

After the referendum, defend migrants' rights

On Friday 24th, there will be anti-racist demos in solidarity with migrants in both London and Swansea. That night the Angry Workers of the World collective will also be holding a talk and filmshowing in Greenford, before getting up early on Saturday morning to demand some unpaid wages from the Amey Greenford depot. Saturday 25th will also see another anti-racist/migrant solidarity protest in Newcastle, while on Sunday there’ll be a mass picket in Melton Mowbray supporting Kumaran Bose, a worker sacked for union organising at Samworth Brothers. And throughout it all, cleaners organised through the United Voices of the World will be on strike at 100 Wood Street in London, with the next big public protest in support of the strike kicking off at 5 in the afternoon on Wednesday 29th. You can also donate to their strike fund here.

Day 12 of the all-out strike

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
