30th November, brilliant march and rally

Thank you to everyone who came on the march and rally in York for the 30th strikes. All of us who are part of York Stop the Cuts were amazed at the turn out, there was an estimated 2,000 people on the march.

Visiting the picket lines (we were cycling round giving out tea and coffee) and asking those out doing the picketing, we found that they have been getting a good response from parsers by, with many more comments of support than negative comments. This really goes to show that the government don’t have support for the cuts they are making and that there is scope for bigger strikes and demonstrations in the future! (see this article in the Independent about our Picket Support Centre in St Laurence Church Hall)
