Ray The Spark Needs Your Solidarity! Please Help!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an interview with Ray - an electrician from the north-east who played a leading role in the grassroots 'Sparks' rebellion. Precisely because of his eminence in the struggle against the construction companies' BESNA attacks, and precisely because that struggle has so far made significant gains, Ray is facing a disciplinary.

Ray is therefore calling for solidarity from Unite members in the north-east, regardless of whether or not they work in construction. If that is you, and you'd like him to get in touch with details of how you can help, please email me at ad_nauseam@riseup.net, and I'll pass on your details. If that is not you, please spread the word through social networking sites, or get in touch with any suitable contacts you may have.

'An injury to one is an injury to all' has long been a slogan of working class organisation, but its meaning sometimes gets lost through repetition. If Ray is punished for standing up to the bosses, and taking part in the most inspirational workplace struggle in recent UK history, then we will all be the worse off for it. Will you let this happen? Of course not! Thankyou!
