From The Socialist newspaper, 4 March 2009

Message from strike leader

Keith Gibson, a Socialist Party member and a member of the Lindsey oil refinery strike committee was unable to attend the meeting on 28 February. But he distributed the following statement:

"Even though I cannot attend today, I would like the meeting to consider the proposals that were put forward at the Manchester meeting which are mostly the demands that were carried at a mass meeting at LOR during our dispute. They are:

Organise a march on parliament on a weekday in the next month around a clear set of demands.

Call a one-day industry-wide national strike on the same day as the march, of all workers covered by NAECI including repair and maintenance with emergency cover organised by trade unions.

Publicise the following demands as widely as possible amongst our members, European unions and the media, to counter the deliberate misreporting of the last strikes as anti-foreigner:

Good luck with the meeting. Be back in action soon.

Keith Gibson (LOR former strike committee)
