Vestas Solidarity Rally – Wed 12 Aug

Tomorrow (Wednesday 12 Aug) trade unionists, socialists and environmental campaigners will be joining together across the country to take part in a national day of solidarity called by the Vestas workers in support of their fight against job losses.

The two leafleting/collection events in Brighton will be taking place at 12noon till 2pm at the city centre clocktower and at 6pm at Churchill Square where there will hopefully be the opportunity for a street meeting with speeches offering our solidarity to the Vestas workers.

Following this evening event there will be an organisation meeting of the Brighton Vestas support group, who have organised these solidarity events, at the Prince Albert pub on Trafalgar Street at 8pm. All trade unionists are encouraged to come along.

The support of the trade unions and their members in this dispute is invaluable. As the RMT have demonstrated, trade union help and involvement in spreading word of this battle throughout our workplaces and communities strengthens the confidence and unity of the whole working class against all the cuts, closures and job losses that we face. Come down to the events tomorrow and show your support. Spread word of the campaign and get involved in fighting back.
