The largest strike action of a generation will take place on Wednesday 30th November.
Occupy London wholeheartedly supports the strike action by over 3 milion workers fighting for their pensions and a better society.
The government is attacking the people with unjust, unequal and unneccesary austerity measures. The banks got bailed out, we got sold out. We stand with workers in opposing this government and this attack.
In the week before the strike, we will be holding and supporting a number of actions and events. Please join us to help make this day a success. We are the 99%, reclaim democracy, reclaim our future.
In the build up to the N30 strikes, Occupy London are holding and supporting a number of events.
Support the strike, reclaim our future.
