Some early solidarity messages to the occupation

I wish you the very, very best of luck with the occupation, and send my solidarity from London! – Joshua Rooney

Tremendous to see all you fighting back, occupying your factory showing we can do something to resist the recession other than the government give loads of money to bankers – and you are helping save the planet at the same time! I have circulated news of your occupation all around the trade unions in Nottinghamshire – keep up the struggle, let us know what help we can give – Solidarity to you all. – Nottinghamshire TUC

On behalf of Unite (Amicus section) members in London, solidarity with your occupation to save jobs and protect an industry that is key in the fight against climate change. Please let us know how we can help.

Congratulations on going into occupation to fight for your jobs. In fact some of us will be with you on Friday and Saturday to show our support.

As members of a local group campaigning against the building of a new coal fired power station at Kingsnorth in Kent, we are appalled to hear about the closure of your factory. It is not just the loss of your jobs, as bad and as important as that is, but also the loss of a major manufacturer of wind turbines at a time when the move to renewables is so essential to the health of our planet.
We support your fight to stop this closure and wish you every success for your campaign. It is an issue of crucial importance to us all – Kingsnorth Climate Action Medway

I wish you every success in this important campaign. There’s nothing worse than watching workers meekly give up their jobs and their futures without a fight. Every time people put up a fight they have a chance of victory. Every victory gives hope to other people that we don’t have to pay the price for an economic crisis that working people didn’t cause. Solidarity! – Ian Allinson, UNITE Executive Council member (pc)



  1. Congratulations on your occupation. Please keep us informed of developments, and let us know how we can help.
