30 June pension strike reports

The 30 June coordinated strike action by the PCS civil service union and NUT, ATL and UCU teaching unions was a historic event. The Socialist Party website has reports from across the country, revealing, in particular, the massive turnout, the huge support from other unions and the public and the mood for further action.

Over 20,000 marched in London; 6,000 in Bristol; 5,000 in Birmingham and Manchester; 4,000 in Brighton; over 2,000 in Leeds and Newcastle and over 1,000 in Cardiff, Glasgow, Sheffield, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Oxford and Hull.

Hundreds marched in dozens of other towns and cities. Here is a tiny taste of a magnificent day for the working class in Britain.

See Reports of massive 30 June public sector pensions strike for the full reports and videos.
