This Thursday, over 700,000 workers in education and the public sector, across several unions, will take to the streets as they strike over pensions. Alongside the unions, campaign groups such as UK Uncut, the National Campaign Against Fees & Cuts ( NCAFC ) and the Education Activist Network (EAN), will be taking part in direct actions in solidarity with striking workers.
Dubbed the J30 Strike, this Thursday promises to be the largest scale strike in a generation, with a bigger national turnout than the March For The Alternative earlier this year.
It is important that we as students, wherever we are in the country, stand united with workers in opposition to negative Government reforms which damage education, damage the public sector, and leave workers under increased financial pressure, or without a job altogether.
With over 150 events scheduled across the country, there’s no excuse to not get involved. Here in Aberystwyth, a union rally will be held from noon, starting at the Morlan Centre.
This Thursday, stand alongside thousands of others and reject the cuts!
