Black Lives Matter, antifascist and workplace struggle over the next few days

This coming weekend looks to be a busy one in a few different locations.

On Friday 5th August, the cleaners organising through the United Voices of the World union are inviting people to join them for a protest marking the 60th day of their heroic strike at 100 Wood Street. The same day will also see Black Lives Matter UK calling for a national “shutdown” event, which definitely has events planned in Nottingham, Manchester, and London.

On Saturday 6th, Midlands antifascists are calling for people to join them in shutting down the EDL’s attempt to march through Nottingham, while up in Blackpool people will also be organising opposition to a Nazi gig that day.

Finally, on Monday 8th, the Radical Assembly of South-East London will be holding a film showing and discussion with the Angry Workers of the World collective, looking at how we can build workplace organisation in today’s conditions.


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."
