J30: Generalise the strike second Birmingham open assembly

Stop Fees and Cuts Birmingham | 12.06.2011 21:10 | J30 Strike | Public sector cuts | Birmingham

we are holding a second planning meeting to give a chance for everyone t get involved with the J30 action. So please do come to the meeting - bring ideas, friends and creativity :) 6:30pm, Friday 24th June University of Birmingham Guild of Students

30th June 2011 may well turn out to be the most important step forward in a mass fight against public sector cuts. Hundreds of thousands of workers could be involved in strike action... in Birmingham five or six different unions will be striking including NUJ, Unison, NUT, PCS, UCU and ATL.

Often strike action can be ignored by those in power but also the... vast majority of workers not in unions or directly affected by the issues. Therefore we rank & file union members, students, precarious workers & unemployed are calling for a mass show of solidarity for those taking strike action and to generalise the strike on June 30th.

From early morning pickets, direct actions, occupations & demonstrations - whatever you're into - lets all do it on June 30th and amplify the resistance to austerity. This call to action has gone out out to all activist direct action groups, local anti-cuts groups, radical political groups, radical unions and student university occupations. The action we take in Birmingham will be part of wider radical action to make June 30th have the biggest impact possible.

Details of other groups around the country perhaps organising in your region can be found here."
