United against cuts and racism
Over 50 trade unionists and anti-racists rallied in Lewisham High Street today to show our solidarity with the NUT member assaulted by far-right thugs a fortnight ago on a campaign stall, and to set up stalls to take our message to the local community - NO to racism, NO to cuts!
Hundreds of copies of the Lewisham NUT leaflet calling for Unity against the Cuts and for Jobs, Pensions and Public Services, NOT Racism were given out. We also handed out leaflets from the joint union '68 is to late' campaign to oppose pensions robbery. Shoppers came up to the NUT stall to sign a letter to David Cameron calling for 'Fair Pensions for all'.
