Sparks, cleaners, and more Kill the Bill protests

In non-Policing Bill related news, or at least not directly related, the construction rank and file dispute continues, with sparks blockading the road outside Hinkley Point C this week:

A quick listing of upcoming events that aren’t Kill the Bill demos: on April 3rd, there’s a day of solidarity with the Manchester bus strike, and if you feel like staying indoors the Angry Workers lot are doing a book presentation for an online event by the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft, who have a whole programme of interesting events coming up over the next few weeks, including presentations from Acorn, Bristol Antifascists, and others. Sisters Uncut are calling for people to take creative individual actions against the bill on Sunday 4th. Deliveroo riders are striking on April 7th, outsourced cleaners organised through CAIWU are demonstrating at the BMA headquarters in London to demand equal treatment on April 9th, and the IWW is running a spring organising summit that runs across several dates but starts on Saturday 10th. Cleaners at University of East London organised through CAIWU will be protesting there on the 13th, and the Anarchist Communist Group are running an online meeting about the Paris Commune on the 15th.

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."
