|The protest outside 'Question Time' last night|
A noisy crowd gathered outside Goldsmiths College before filming started to make our voices heard - above all about the threats to the NHS. The successful campaign to defend Lewisham Hospital has shown that, with a bold campaign, victories can be achieved. Lewisham teachers have also achieved a recent success over pay and appraisal policies through the threat of strike action. These kinds of local successes need to be celebrated - and publicised. Above all, they need to be built upon to build a national campaign of action to oppose cuts and defend services - in the NHS, education and across public services.
The successful RMT ballot in support of strike action to oppose the cuts to jobs and ticket office closures on the Tube opens another campaign that needs our full support.
