oxford and newcastle

In September 2008 five Colombian cleaners working for Amey Plc at the
National Physical Laboratory were suspended for daring to criticise Amey
for putting an excessive workload onto ever fewer staff, for
unilaterally changing terms and conditions and for disrespecting
grievance procedures. The five have since been sacked.

The two demos today make it 4 in 10 days. This follows two in bristol in october and november.

Oxford:

About 20 people from oxford, bristol and south wales no borders made a horrible noise with drums, olive oil tins, a symbol and two megaphones. the megaphones were particularly effective – especially the siren function, and we got some proper nasty feedback when we placed one next to the other.

Dialogue was not forthcoming from within the glass and steel building , but we did hear from one of the sacked workers first hand: he thanked us for supporting him and his fellow workers, but it was there fighting spirit which inspired us all to be there
