The workers have called for a demonstration in Newport on Saturday 1 August. Assemble 1pm in St Thomas’s Square, Newport, IoW.
It’s an important weekend – the postponed court hearing for the possession order is next Tuesday 4 August. The plant closes – officially! – tomorrow, 31st July.
If you can get down to the Isle of Wight to support the demonstration it would be a big boost to the workers and their families. If you can’t come, please organise a protest in your own village, town or teeming metropolis. Take pictures of your protest and email them to email@example.com – we’ll post up as many as we can on the blog.
