In support for the protesters

THE strike as I see it goes back many years and is the workers way of showing disapproval of the management/governments autocratic way of dealing with problems.

In this case this Tory lead government are doing things for which they were not elected and as we have seen already they have performed more bends, U turns than there are on the A64.

The rights of the teachers, civil servant, police are being steam rollered down by this so called coalition government in the name of decreasing the deficit which was caused by the greed of capitalists, ie bankers across the world.

We have seen job cuts, the big society, which is another name for get the job done for free, so I support these public servants who wish to protest.
