November 30 Day of Action

November 25, 2011 at 8:29 pm Leave a comment

On 30 November members of public service unions take part in a day of strike action to protecttheir pension rights. No doubt they will be supported on the picket lines by many non union members who ssupport the action.

Many people who support the action cannot support the action in person, because of illness, disability, family or work commitments can still make their voices heard in a campaign set up by Virtual Resistance  and Virtual Gherkin Twitter @virtualresistan tweeting on behalf of  the Virtualgherkin on Facebook. You can find details of their event on their  Virtual Gherkin Blog. The campaign involes sending letters supporting the action to the media.  A template letter is on the blog, but you can adapt it or send you own if you  choose.

Please support the event, and help protect public services,  they include basics like schools and refuse collection,  as well as care and other support, the latter being especially vital to disabled people.  Make your voices heard on November 30.  You can help before  then by sharing the details as widely as possible, the more peoplewho act, the more effective it will be
