Scrap the Council Tax Demo

A couple of photos from Saturday's 'scrap the council tax' demo. Turnout was around 2000, which we were very pleased with.

The above pic see's Tommy commandeering the FBU's fire engine which led the demo. There were also speakers from the FBU, PCS and UNISON. The latter, a nursery nurse, spoke powerfully about the current situation concerning the strike. Union leaders threatened striking workers with expulsion from the union if they took part in a lobby of the union hq. The union leadership has decided to drop the demand for national pay which was central to the campaign.

And off to a rally in the Barras, which actually worked very well for a venue.
