STRIKE!
« on: 13 March, 2015, 07:52:52 PM »
Been on 4 strikes this past 5 years and this was the best day so far. The sense of solidarity and the comfort of everyday workers (like you, me and so many others) making common purpose for basic dignity and social cohesion was a real and joyus experience. Big smiles from NI. Z :D

Stand proud Z! I was once on a strike that lasted 14 months. Workers who were making £300 to £400+ a week  and had mortgages and families came out onto the picket line to support those poor unfortunately such as myself who were barely making half that.

Thanks for the kind words folks. ZippoCreed, I can only stand in awe of the sacrifices involved in 14 month strike. Z
