23-07-2005 11:31

In the last seven weeks I have had the opportunity to make working visits to seven different Arab countries and to engage in political and other discussions with local officials, academics, journalists and opposition activists.

This is an extraordinary radio interview that aired on KPFK Pacifica Radio in Los Angeles last Monday, on the Iranian Revolution and French Philosopher Michel Foucault, who embraced it.

Parliament cleaners go on strike.

20-07-2005 23:22

Not an unreasonable request when you consider how much MPs earn.
When you consider how badly Parliament has shafted the rest of us it’s hardly surprising that they treat their own cleaners like dirt as well. The T&G Trade union today organised a 1 day strike and protest over the conditions experienced by the agency staff who clean Tony Blair’s toilet.

Bristol Trade Unionist, victimised by management and sacked

20-07-2005 22:42

Jerry Hicks, highlyrespected by his workmates.
Management at the Rolls Royce engineering plant in Bristol recently suffered a humiliating clime down when two suspended workers were reinstated after unofficial strike action. Since then they have suspended popular shop steward Jerry Hicks and today they sacked him. This will almost certainly result in ballots for strike action at the plant and the company’s other depots.
