Image by Ardfern/Wikimeda Commons It has been two years since I met two of the Angola 3. The Angola 3 are three black men (one of whom sadly died after his release in 2013) who were accused of the death of a prison officer in 1972, and who maintain their innocence to the present day. A 2013…

Workers’ Power at Heathrow – A report

Angry Workers of the World

UnknownA friend works as a maintenance engineer at Heathrow airport. You can read about working conditions and organising efforts below – a shorter version will be distributed to Heathrow workers in WorkersWildWest no.9. If you want to get involved in our modest organising efforts in and around Heathrow, drop us a line:

The recent terrorism charges against activists who tried to stop a deportation flight at Stansted airport [1] demonstrated the highly politicised character most protests have once they take place around airports. The protests are politically charged either because airports are national borders like in the case of the Stansted 15 or because they are seen as of major national interest, which explains, for example, the heavy police repression against the wildcat strikes of airport construction workers in Turkey this year, who walked out after over 50 construction workers died on the site since works began.

I’d go sick if I were you

Have a look at the Xmas opening times for Lakeside: Lakeside Shopping Centre has revealed its Christmas opening hours. https://www.essexlive.news/whats-on/shopping/lakeside-shopping-centre-revealed-christmas-2273451 Retail workers get one day off over the festive period and that’s Xmas Day itself. The centre shuts at 7pm on Xmas Eve and re-opens at 9am on Boxing Day. The workers in the shops will have to stay later and get in earlier than these times to prepare the shops for opening. That could well mean a 7am start for some workers. If workers are rostered to work on Xmas Eve and Boxing Day, Xmas Day itself is going to be little more than resting up recovering from a late finish the previous day and getting as ready as possible for the onslaught the next day.

Not everyone who works at Lakeside has access to a car. A fair number of younger workers, particularly the part time ones rely…
