On Wednesday 30 March thousands of workers in the deprived London borough of Tower Hamlets took coordinated strike action against cuts. Unison activist Paul Hanes produced this video report.
Paul Hanes is a member of Counterfire who started Fourman Films in 2003 after his first feature documentary that year. He is an award winning film maker, active trade unionist and a prolific video blogger and citizen journalist. He has over 1,000 YouTube videos which form an historic and in depth record of the movement, often overlooked by the mainstream media.
