Unity is a difficult thing to come by these days. Protests are generally mounted by the same old hacks, or simply by those whose livelihoods depend on it whilst others (especially in cases of industrial action see such protests as an inconvenience.) But in times like these, when unemployment is sky-rocketing, we can be fighting a unified struggle.
If you are free tomorrow and around London, there will be a demonstration from Highbury Fields to Archway Tower here in Islington to fight massive job cuts at London Metropolitan University, City University, and 500 civil service posts in Archway Tower. These sorts of cuts don’t just affect those who are made redundant, they affect whole communities and we must come together to fight it. Whilst the government is more concerned with infighting and the so-called “revelation” that politicians are untrustworthy and corrupt, we have to show them that their policies are ruining the livelihoods of real people, and the spirits of communities.
