AROUND 120 people recently packed into a local meeting called by the Residents Against Port Expansion group in Harwich. The group has taken on the giant multinational Hutchisin Whampoa, which is planning to build a massive automated container dock. This will be just a few hundred yards from a working class residential area. The meeting had trade unionists, environmentalists and Socialist Alliance members.

The proposal will not employ 772 directly on the dock. The container dock will be fully automated and designed to run with the minimum of labour.
