Earth strike day in London

On the day of the 'earth strike' - Friday 20 September - thousands of young people are expected to descend on central London.

Additionally many trade unionists, including Socialist Party members, have been organising in their trades councils, union branches and workplaces for local actions to link together workers and young people.

Young Socialist Students' member Eilis Mulholland led a lively discussion and debate at Southwark trades council. The workers there are protesting at the council offices at 12.30 on Friday, to be joined by campaigners from local colleges.

In Camden, trade union members are rallying at lunchtime and then joining the central London protests.

Similar rallies are happening in Hackney. In Waltham Forest, the trades council has campaigned for protests by workers inside or at the front gates of their workplaces, as well as a local gathering in the town square.

Socialist Students member Lily Douglas spoke at Redbridge trades council to encourage the members there to take action.

These are just a few of the examples where Socialist Party trade unionists and young members have been involved in organising action - there will be similar events in many boroughs, including Lewisham, Wandsworth, Newham and many more.
