Upcoming Picturehouse Living Wage events, and radical bloc for July 1st

At the start of this month, Picturehouse Cinemas suspended several workers involved in union organising efforts. This has provoked a strong response, with daily community pickets being mounted outside the Ritzy cinema in Brixton.

As part of that ongoing response, supporters of the dispute will be leafleting Crouch End Picturehouse on the evening of Wednesday 28th, Wandsworth Young Labour will be out at the Ritzy on Thursday 29th (not sure how this relates to ongoing South London Picturehouse support stuff), and then there’s a big protest planned for Hackney Picturehouse on Friday 30th, where the cinema will be hosting two premieres as part of the East End Film Festival. Hackney Picturehouse are meant to be striking again on the evening of Saturday 1st July – not sure if anyone else is or if it’s just Hackney. Then on Friday 7th, there’s leafleting at Greenwich Picturehouse, organised by Lewisham Momentum.

As well as the planned Hackney strike, Saturday 1st July will also see a big walkaround planned for Central London. Plan C have just put out a call for a radical autonomous bloc on the day. In other Plan C news, tickets for their annual Fast Forward festival in September have now gone on sale.

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."
