Happy Birthday 26 March?

A year ago today half a million of us filled the streets of London (http://m.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/mar/26/march-for-the-alternative-government?cat=society&type=article). We demonstrated the opposition of the broad mass of the people of this country to the vandalism of public services being orchestrated by the Tory Government and their Lib Dem window dressing.



I would like to be able to post to this blog about the ways in which the TUC General Council used the largest ever trade union demonstration in the UK as a springboard for militant and effective campaigning. Such a post would have, however, to be held over to this coming Sunday (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fools'_Day).



Union activists need to build our strength and organisation locally. It would be foolish to expect a national lead I'm afraid.
