Marching nowhere

It was easily predictable that today’s march would be a flop politically. Few would run out because the Unions particularly in the public sector, but generally, have not stopped the job loss and capitulated on pensions and pay. The relevance of unions is at all time low. The weakness was epitomised by Ed Milliband’s speech, derided and booed by the crowds. Labour, he in effect said, will give you more of the same, but will reverse privatisation in the NHS. While the trade unions in their actions accepting worse pensions, pay and massive job losses accept the need for decline, so Labour in their words reflect the passivity. As this is all going on the Tories and the City of London are relishing the prospects of further attacks. To regain credibility the Unions now have to dig in in every workplace and give serious consideration to the action necessary to remove the economic from the power of the vandals. The predicatbly poor turnout on October 20th will be used by those who seek to avoid confrontation with the government as proof that there is no appetite for action amongst workers. The opposite is the case. Workers stayed away today because they want something more. The days of balloons and marches is over.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
