The Appledore Work-In

The Appledore Work-In

Workers at the Appledore shipyard in Devon have occupied to defend their jobs. In a great example of using the web for online solidarity, a blog has been set up in their support. The blog was initially set up by SSP members in Scotland to help those running the sit-in keep people updated. It shows how the web helps people bring their skills to bear to bring solidarity regardless of distance. The site makes it easy to send messages of support and donations and also to fax the local MP.

Check it out at the link above, and spread the word.
