The fightback is now

UNISON has published a handy summary of today's spending review available online (http://www.unison.org.uk/acrobat/2010SpendingReviewAnalysis1.pdf).



The 3,000 strong march from Lincoln's Inn to Whitehall this evening has shown both what can be done by local union branches working through a campaigning Trades Council and the potential that exists for the union movement to mobilise opposition to the ConDems.



The continuing presence of protesters has somewhat depleted attendance at the meeting called by the Labour Representation Committee - but the trade union speakers are rightly calling for a unified fightback.



Apparently, Bob Crow says, the TUC demo on 26 March is not yet confirmed as the Royal Parks are worried that we might trample the daffodils, whereas the Government are just trampling on our communities...
