Day-Mer festival support for 30 June pensions strike
The 22nd Day-Mer Festival, organised by the Turkish and Kurdish community organisation Day-Mer, took place in Hackney, north London, on 3 July.
Socialist Party members Chris Baugh, PCS assistant general secretary, and Martin Powell-Davies, an NUT executive member, got warm responses to their speeches in the wake of the united strike action of their unions on 30 June which many Day-Mer members took part in.
Youth Fight for Jobs held a stall for the 2011 Jarrow to London march (see page 6 for details) and gave out hundreds of leaflets for the event.
