Upcoming events: Remembering Yassar, action against deportations, social strike planning and Orgreave

A few dates for your diary over the next few months:

There will be a gathering at Junction 24 on the M62 at 5:00 on Monday 9th to commemorate the one week anniversary of Mohammed Yassar Yaqub’s killing by the police. You can also donate to his family here.

The Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary are organising two weeks of action aimed at stopping mass deportation charter flights, mainly in London (and Lagos) but with a few events happening elsewhere. There should be a full list of events here.

In February, Plan C will be hosting a Social Strike Assembly over two days, aiming to build towards a migrants’ strike for the “One Day Without Us” initiative. You can read more about their plans for the year ahead here.

On March 13th, the Orgreave Truth & Justice Campaign are planning their biggest public demo yet, outside the Home Office. You can email them at orgreavejustice@hotmail.com or message their FB page to check transport details or order publicity materials.

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."
