Flyer and leaflet for the Radical Workers Bloc on March 6th now available

February 12, 2010

A flyer and a leaflet for the Radical Workers Bloc on the TUC ‘March for Jobs’ are now available. We’ll be getting these around Brighton over the next week.

Let’s build a movement to fight the cuts…


Politicians from all the parties want to cut public services to pay for the massive support they have given to the very financial institutions that caused the economic mess in the first place. That means more unemployment, reduced services and lower benefits with tighter controls on claimants.


This demonstration is billed as a “March for Jobs” but we want more. Of course, we need to protect jobs. Every job lost to redundancy means more workload for those who remain. An injury to one really is an injury to all. But we also need to stop the cuts that take away vital services, hard-won by generations of struggle.


Workers in the private sector have already seen redundancies and pay cuts in order to keep up profits for shareholders. Even those in the public sector who keep their jobs will face a pay freeze after the election. This amounts to a pay cut as we see rising inflation make the money we earn worth less and less.

Brighton Solidarity Federation and others are forming a Radical Workers’ Bloc on the demonstration. We reject the notion that voting will bring about a solution for us – the cuts will be defeated on the streets and on the picket lines, not the ballot box. We have the recent victory of the bin men to show us how it’s done!

We need to send a message not only to whatever government will be in power after May but also to our fellow workers. There will be an open mic available, and the march will pass near the Lloyds call centre where 400 jobs are at risk. Join us as we stop and make some noise to show solidarity to the workers inside. Their fight is our fight.

Join us on the Radical Workers’ Bloc on 6th March, 12 noon at the Level, Brighton. Look for the red & black flags and the Brighton Solidarity Federation banner.

If any of the issues in this leaflet are affecting you then why not contact us? SolFed members are from the public and private sectors, facing planned redundancies, a likely pay freeze and unemployment. Your struggles are our struggles.
