Picturehouse strike action on Saturday

Saturday July 1st will see a big walk around Central London, featuring an autonomous bloc organised by Plan C, but it’ll also see strike action in the ongoing campaign for a living wage and against victimisation of union members at Picturehouse Cinemas. I’ve seen confirmation that the Brixton Ritzy, Crouch End, East Dulwich and Hackney Picturehouse sites will be taking action on the day. The big events are planned for Brixton, with a protest outside the Ritzy demanding the reinstatement of the suspended/sacked workers from 4-8, and then an afterparty at the Prince Albert on Coldharbour Lane playing “Motown, Dance, New Wave, D’n’B and monster pop hits” from 10-2. So, consider getting yourself down to Brixton, but if you live anywhere in London I’d encourage you to consider heading down to your nearest picket line after you get bored of getting kettled in Central London. And then next Friday there’s leafleting at the Greenwich cinema to try and spread the dispute there. You can also donate to their strike funds 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."
