Time/date: All Day
Location: Speakers’ Corner, SL London Hyde Park
SLUNCUT, a broad coalition formed to support the global resistance against cut-backs and austerity, have called a day of action in SL as a show of solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of public sector workers on strike in Britain this Thursday.
700,000 British public sector workers have voted to take strike action in defence of their jobs and services. Teachers, public servants, healthcare workers, transport workers, lecturers and council workers will be stopping work to stop cuts to the NHS and pensions.
We will be aiming for a full day occupation of London Hyde Park in SL to share tweets from the protests as they unfold and to discuss the way forward for the fightback. We may even meet a few people on strike themselves. Wherever you are in the world (except possibly the UK, in which case we’d expect you to be on the streets!), we encourage you to come along and show your support for the public sector workers of Britain. United we stand, we will defeat these cuts.
