Slaughter of the unions

One trade unionist recently described the war on trade union activists currently taking place throughout the public services and sections of the private sector as making Britain “like Colombia without the murder”. There has indeed been a systematic attack by Labour and Tory Councils alike on union activists seeking to organise resistance to the blitzkrieg of cuts. The war on civil service activists is rife throughout government departments. The subterranean attack on facilities time has now been joined by the more overt strategy of making activists redundant, using disciplinary procedures and bullying. Depriving trade union activists of their livelihoods has been a well used tactic by employers, but never to such a scale as it is in Britain today. Add to this the fact that hardly any young people are active in unions, only 2 in 8 workers in the private sector are covered by collective bargaining and collective bargaining in the public sector has been largely prevented for the last 4 years and we have a cocktail of unique difficulties for the unions to overcome.

That the government is using Huawei technology, is a sign of independence. We don't want to be trussed up and handed over to a new neoliberal trade deal with the US, just as we got out of the neoliberal EU. Farage is pushing US interests.
No to US sanctions.
No to US bullying.

The ugly truth is that China has bought and paid for the UK establishment. Our elite has been captured yet again. https://www.newsweek.com/huawei-boris-johnson-conservative-rebellion-churchill-farage-1488582

Cuba is the safest destination for tourism, because of its people's hospitality. SOCIALISM.

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.
