Unite the Resistance is organising a rally in central London on Monday 15 October, just a few days before the big 20 October TUC demo, to discuss the case for a general strike.
Speakers will debate how the landmark vote to examine ‘the practicalities of a general strike’ at this year’s TUC Congress can be turned into action.
Monday’s speakers will now include a student activist from Quebec. A very militant student stuggle in the Candaina province brought in trade unionists and put half a million people on the streets of Montreal.
The students eventually beat back a tuition fees hike — and helped bring down the Liberal government in last month’s elections.
Quebec student Jeremie Bedard-Wien will join Mark Serwotka, Jeremy Corbyn and other speakers on the platform for the rally. If you are in London, please come along.
