Along with 2 million other public sector workers, I was on strike yesterday. I had planned to post a big long anti-Osborne rant that I wrote before I went out to go on the march, but I got back and felt all fuzzy and hopeful about society’s ability to heal itself and so I will just say this: this strike isn’t about public versus private sector, it’s about stopping this government making the low paid workers doing the jobs that society needs take all the pain, while those that are already millionaires continue to be paid exorbitant wages and tax evasion is still endemic. That is all.
I found the photo while searching flickr for the word solidarity. It’s nicer than people holding signs.
