Workers across the world are in a life and death struggle as rulers seek to make us pay for the bosses and bankers crisis. The TUC passed a resolution at its annual congress last year committing it to consider the practicalities of a general strike. The calls for coordinated strikes must turn into a reality.
But resistance will also take other forms – in defence of our NHS and education, the scapegoating of migrant workers, disabled people and the unemployed, the growing campaigns against the bedroom tax and other issues.
This conference will seek to bring together all strands of the fightback, to organise and build practical solidarity now.
