Picturehouse strikes and solidarity with Belarusian comrades

As well as all the other stuff happening in the next few days – including action against benefit sanctions and housing benefit cuts, bike rides against Deliveroo in Leeds and Brighton, and attempting to stop Britain First taking to the streets – it’s now been announced that staff employed by Picturehouse cinemas will be striking on Friday, so there should be lively pickets at Hackney, Central London Picturehouse and the Brixton Ritzy.

Meanwhile, the IWGB have a new tool that lets you send postcards directly to the head of Deliveroo in support of their campaign (the first twenty’ll be free, after that it’s £1 a pop).

Over in Belarus, recent anti-government protests have led to a huge crackdown, with hundreds of people being taken into custody. Belarus Anarchist Black Cross are appealing for donations to help them support anarchist comrades arrested in the repression – you can send money directly via paypal to belarus_abc@riseup.net, or via this fundraising page (which gives you the option of getting a snazzy Bristol ABC shirt), or if you’d prefer to donate to a more general, Amnesty-type human rights organisation working in Belarus, there’s one here.

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."
