Over 60 people met to launch Unite the Resistance in South London on Thursday of last week.

Sarah Murdock, Lambeth and Southwark DWP PCS branch organiser, said “We need to resist the government’s attempt to pit working people against benefit recipients”.

A firefighter addressed the meeting, saying, “They are coordinated on their side, we need to be equally coordinated on our side.”

Kevin Courtney, NUT deputy secretary, closed the meeting with a call for action, “Strike action should begin—it should be national and it shouldn’t stop because of the outcome of an election.”
