UK 10 July 2014- Nationwide strikes expected

6 July 2014 — The People’s Assembly

This Thursday, on 10 July, up to 2 million people will be out on strike in a co-ordinated strike action across the trade unions. There will be huge demonstrations and protests up and down the country.
These actions will be the next step in the summer of resistance, working towards a monster TUC demonstration on 18 October in London.

Lets do all we can to make sure the strikers are supported in our communities, and help to make the demonstrations huge – join the rallies and demonstrations, join your local picket lines and bring along tea and biscuits – anything you can do to support those on strike will make a huge difference. 

Here are a few videos in support of the strikes. Please share these far and wide! Why not make your own video of why you are supporting the strikes? Tweet using hashtag #J10
