Good luck!

Good luck to everyone taking strike action tomorrow, 30 June - and to all those who will be showing solidarity with the strikes in any way possible.

The admirable j30 website includes details of local protests. It is very helpful to trade unionists that there should be "unofficial" publicity, clearly independent of the unions, since this can say things which - for fear of the anti-union laws - official trade union publicity cannot repeat.

We must ensure that this is simply the first step in a sustained campaign to defend public service pensions (and through that campaign, the entire public sector). We must not allow ourselves to be divided down the blind alley of "sector specific" negotiations which allow the Government to play one group off against another.
