double prime minister event is in the cards, i have done the maths
ETA: This post continues to be spread and spread and spread, which is deeply funny to me, so I’d just like to plug the work of 350.org, Tree Aid, and Survival International, if you’re that way inclined. I’d like to think the continued success of this post might spread lols and good in the world :)
The UK is an absolute cluster fuck at the moment, people are suffering and all our gov wants to do atm is launch a smear campaign against workers and individuals who advocate for them (Mick Lynch) also teach the kids maths.
The audacity of implying that nurses and paramedics are endangering lives when they strike, when the actual endangerment is the calculated destruction of the NHS. The implications that nurses don't work hard enough when they work ridiculously tiring shifts. That if they worked some more they wouldn't need food banks.
That is simply one example of how workers are being mistreated and exploited by this government. And its an important one, we as a country were united by our health service, one we all could be proud of and rally behind.
Our workers desvere so much better, striking is the solution and it's not a decision taken lightly by workers. They need protect.
If you are uk based I'm asking that you sign this petition, demonstrate some solidarity.
