British Workers in the Streets

The British government is trying to “reform” (steal) the pension of public employees.  It is also proposing cuts in pay and heavy layoffs.  Public sector workers responded with a massive protest that closed schools, transit services, and many other government offices.  BBC estimates that “tens of thousands” participated in the strike with 30,000 in the streets of Birmingham and 25,000 in London.  Trying to play down the protest, Prime Minister David Cameron said, “It looked like a damp squid.”  The squid may be damp, but it looks pretty big and mean.  Politicians across the world need to wake up.  Working people are getting fed up and angry.
