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.
