Notts workers strike for pensions

An estimated 60,000 public sector workers across Nottinghamshire went on strike on 30th November. The aim of the strike was to put pressure on the government over its plans to radically change public sector pensions. Unions claim that the proposed changes would mean that workers pay more, work longer and receive less at the end of it. Undoubtedly the strikes were also a protest against the wi…

N30 critical mass and free space

As well as the main pickets and march yesterday, a critical mass was organised to shut down the city. A group of 25 cyclists cycled (at extremely slow pace) around the city centre for a few hours after the march had finished, spreading the word about the strike and the fight against government cuts everywhere we went. There was a huge amount of public support for our message.

We entered the building last Tuesday night and have spent the last 6 days cleaning, clearing and making a what was an unusable building r…

On November 30th, an array of public sector unions will strike together against government attacks on their pensions. In Nottingham there will be pickets across the city, a march and rally, a critical mass bike ride and, in the evening, a meeting opposing cuts at the BBC.
