The largest strike action of a generation will take place on Wednesday 30th November. Occupy London wholeheartedly supports the strike by over 3 million workers fighting for their pensions and a better society.
The government is attacking the people with unjust, unequal and unneccesary austerity measures. The banks got bailed out, we got sold out. We stand with workers in opposing this government and this attack. The Treasury Committee of Parliament’s Independent Commission on Banking gave their final report this week at Westminster. They heard witnesses from executives of banks like RBS, HSBC, and Lloyds, and it’s their charge to examine the policy and investigate the actions of these banks regarding the crisis. We want to remind Parliament that their duty is to the people, not the banks — where is our bailout? What makes up a city, we ask — the Londoners or the landmarks?
The people of the UK will not stand for their government’s silence or their collusion with the financial industry. They will stand up on November 30th for the largest general strike in recent British history. See you there!
In the week before the strike, we will be holding and supporting a number of actions and events. The principal aim of this week is to join students, unions and retired in collaborative actions. The N30 we organize a big collective action in the morning, after this massive “blockade” we will support the different marches all day long in solidarity with all the outraged workers and we invite everybody to join the first “General Assembly of London” at the end of the day to unite the 99% and decide all together how we continue the fight.
Support the strike, reclaim our future.
