Britain: government threatens anti-strike laws following fuel tax protests : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

Britain's Labour government is proposing
legislation to effectively illegalise strike
action in broad sectors of the economy,
following fuel tax protests by road-hauliers
and farmers last week.

. . .

Morris and his cohorts then used this to
justify calls for state repression against
a legitimate and popular protest, denouncing
it as a bosses blockade.
