Heatwave permitting, Monday 18th should see a Palestine Action meeting in Brighton and the start of a three-day strike by cleaners and other outsourced staff at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who’ve organised through the IWGB. Thursday 21st sees a Palestine Action fundraiser in London, and Saturday 23rd will see the start of another round of strike action by the Brighton pub workers who’ve organised through UVW, and a solidarity fundraiser gig for their strike fund happening in Brighton that night.
In a rather more high-profile dispute, Wednesday July 27 will be the next national day of strike action by the RMT.
Closing out the month, Saturday 30th will see an event in Leeds to launch the new book by NHS workers, Sick of it All, which is now available from PM Press, and a workplace organiser training run by Newcastle SolFed.
The Saint James Tavern workers in Brighton will also be striking from August 4th-8th and 12th-15th, and then August 18 will see another national RMT strike date, and is also supposed to be the start of a trial against people who allegedly took action against Israeli arms company Elbit in London. The Brighton pub strikers will also be out again from the 19th-22nd and 26th-29th, and the last RMT strike date currently announced is August 20th.
Further ahead still, the Sick of it All book is also meant to be having a launch event in Wakefield on August 30th, and there are anarchist/radical bookfairs scheduled for Bradford on September 3rd, London on September 17th at the end of a week-long Antiuni festival, Peterborough on October 29th, and Manchester on November 5th.
