***Paisley strike solidarity demo Saturday 28th Jan***
PAISLEY STRIKE SOLIDARITY was formed by IWW members in Paisley, along with individuals from Living Rent and Don’t Pay UK.
Since starting in December we have visited picket lines, held street stalls, connected with local grassroots groups, leafleted the local football ground, and flyposted the town.
Our big project is a MARCH AND RALLY this SATURDAY 28th JANUARY at 1pm meeting at the High St at the corner of New Street. We have ran a determined campaign, but we started from zero a month ago. So we are putting a CALL OUT to come and join us on the day. We are planning for a small but lively, colourful and noisy event in support of the strikes.
Bring flags, placards and noise makers. Singers especially welcome! We are just a 10 minute train journey from Glasgow Central.
