Biggest strike rally in Portsmouth in a generation

This was the most widespread strike action in Portsmouth in living memory with the majority of schools closed plus council services, HMRC and MOD offices, the University and many other workplaces closed or seriously affected. This shows the massive potential and power of working people coming together to stand up for their rights. The News estimated 3000 people came down to the rally in Guildhall Square where speakers from many unions, to huge applause and cheers, attacked the governments class war on working people. Private sector workers and unions spoke of their support for the strike and refusal to let Cameron & co divide and rule on that basis. Calls for more action on the basis of pensions and against cuts were well received with union members.
