Unite the Resistance conference aims to build fightback

Issue No. 2271

Trade union activists are organising a conference on Saturday 19 November. It is shaping up to be a key event in the run-up to the 30 November mass strikes.

The convention is titled Unite the Resistance: Building the Fight, Building to Win. It is modelled on the successful 750-strong Unite the Resistance rally held in London shortly before the 30 June public sector strikes.

This time more trade unionists have come on board and are helping to launch and organise the convention.

These include Jon Rogers, Max Watson, Paul Holmes and Karen Reissmann from the Unison union national executive (all in personal capacity) and Martin Mayer, Jane Stewart, Sara Bennett and Mark Wood from Unite’s executive council.

The convention is open to anyone who wants to fight the Tories’ attacks.

Everyone can bring activists from their workplace, anti-cuts group or college. You can also get your branch or organisation to sponsor the conference.

It will feature a dozen workshops and panel sessions with plenty of opportunities to contribute to the discussion.

The conference will be part of a process of building a network of activists across the working class to build the 30 November strikes and to take the action forward.


Saturday 19 November, 11am to 5pm
Royal Horticultural Halls
80 Vincent Square, London SW1P 2PE
