Fighting for global justice on your doorstep

Fighting for global justice on your doorstep

Date: 28 June 2011

So it’s the big strike on 30 June.  Hundreds of thousands of teachers, workers and public service workers are striking to protest at the governments austerity measures.  Measures driven by a desire to pursue a neo-liberal agenda that will damage public services and open the door the door of privatisation, putting profit before people.

In solidarity with other campaigners in the global south who have been protesting against a similar western-led agenda for years, WDM will be supporting the strike. 

There are several ways to get involved all over the country:

It’s a great opportunity to inform/remind people that the same story has been going on in the global south for years and that the cuts don’t and won’t work but there is a credible alternative.

This is also the ideal opportunity for blogging, and tweeting to reinforce those local and global links and bring WDM’s message to an audience who might not usually be interested in what we have to say. And if you get any good pictures on the day please let us have them ([email protected]) so we can put them on the web.
