TWT_025 defend our right to strike

As inflation and energy bills skyrocket and wages hit rock bottom, we’re seeing a huge wave of resistance through strikes and civil disobedience. Having failed to offer any answers to the rocketing cost of living, the Tories resort to divide and rule – pitting worker against worker with racism or a race to the bottom logic on pay and conditions. Now, building on decades of anti-trade union legislation, they’re proposing fresh attacks on the right to strike, while further dismantling our right to protest. Join us to debate how we defend our right to resist and build the fightback.
