‘Change is not a spectator sport’ – CWU head Dave Ward announced last night that ways are coming for everyone to take action against mass exploitation and poverty, not just union members
The people of Liverpool enjoyed a riotous evening of resistance last night as speaker after speaker talked of the need for real change and the need for ordinary people to force it to happen when the Establishment controls both the government and the notional ‘opposition’ – resistance and a push for change that is already terrifying those in power as strike after strike signals ‘Enough is enough’.
And CWU general secretary Dave Ward gave notice of a development that will deepen the Establishment’s fear – that ‘change is not a spectator sport’ and the movement will soon be announcing new measures that will mean every ordinary person in the country will be able to take practical part in the demand for change:
And Ward also had short shrift for Keir Starmer, condemning the lack of Westminster opposition and warning that the new measures will drag Labour, kicking and screaming if necessary, into siding with the workers instead of the elites and billionaires.
If the Tories and those masquerading as an opposition are afraid of what has happened so far as unionised workers in sector after sector say ‘no more’, they will be petrified soon when the whole country has ways to resist.
