Occupy London to hold meeting at 6pm on Wednesday 23rd for union groups to discuss what can be done in the lead up to and on the day of the November 30 strike.
"Occupy London would like to express our support and solidarity with the unions and their current fight against pension cuts.
We wish to actively organise and work with you for the November 30th strikes and beyond. On Thursday, Occupy London repossessed the old UBS building. We have taken it over with the intention to use it as a space for creating a hub to bring together Unions, community groups and students into a dialogue.
On Wednesday at 6pm we will be holding a meeting for union groups to discuss what can be done in the lead up to and on the day of the strike.
Occupy London are planning for seven days of action and events leading up to the 30th. This would involve days of direct action, supporting existing union action, picketing services being cut and many other ideas.
On Saturday 26th, we would like to invite unions to a mass General Assembly to discuss the strike and build momentum for it.
We understand the vital importance of the strikes and hope we can help to make the day a success and effective.
If wednesday does not work, we are at the occupation at most times so let us know if you can meet another time.
6pm Wednesday 22nd November
