We’re holding an open air rally in Cardiff with a worker from the factory coming down to speak alongside Trade Unionists, Socialists and Climate Activists.
We are also encouraging people to put banners outside their windows at work, college or home supporting the campaign, do collections and get people to leave their work or college for an hour on the day in protest. The Campaign against Climate Change has produced teacher’s packs so that students can learn about climate change on the day.
We will be selling Green Ribbons in the run up to the day and on the day for £1 and send all the money to the workers who’ve lost their jobs.
The occupiers and the people in the campaign have asked for this kind of solidarity. They have also demanded that the fight should be taken to the labour party conference in Brighton on 27th September.
If you are in South East Wales & want to get involved please contact us. Please leave suggestions about what you can on the day or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . And tell as many people as possible!
