Right to Work are compiling a list of all the protests / rallies and demonstrations on November 30. You can check what’s happening in your areas at the link below
Please send your event details to
So far there are marches and protests almost everywhere in the country and more and more unions have balloted members and are joining this protest which will be the biggest general strike ever seen in the UK. Over 3 million trade union members are going to be on strike, including disabled members. This is not just about public sector pensions although that is the only thing unions can legally take strike action about: it is a fight to save the welfare state that we all need, to stop the Condems destroying our NHS, and our lives.
Although you may feel this doesn’t involve you if you’re not a union member or aren’t working it is all very much part of our continuing fight for justice for our community so we would urge anyone who can to take part in these events on November 30th.
John Mc Donnell said at our conference that it would be great to have a disabled person on every picket line in the country. We agree and we need to be seen to be part of this so that we and our fight keep being visible to non-disabled people and trade union leaders.
