Birmingham bin men took strike action for the third time in two weeks today. Comrades from Birmingham CPGB-ML supported pickets at Tyseley, Perry Barr and Lifford Lane. The morale of the bin men is high, and they have good reason to be optimistic. The public support was loud and clear as cars tooted their horns in passing, and our own comrades have heard nothing but support from the public at stalls and tables we’ve ran in Handsworth and the city centre. We call on all our supporters to get behind the bin men this Friday @ 6am!
Public Rally to support the strike in the city centre ::
Thursday 13 July | 5.00pm – 6.15pm

Help us tell the public that this strike is not about modernisation, it’s a result of capitalist crisis.
