Tues 28 Sept; Strike Day 1
Great to see that Mike Jackson, co-founder of the ‘Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners’ group (featured in the film “Pride”), turned up to support the strike at the WKC KX picket and brought along their banner in solidarity. A really exciting and uplifting first day with healthy and upbeat pickets at all four college sites.
