Poetry on the Picket line grew out of the solidarity work carried out by the poets involved with supporting PCS members in the National Gallery dispute. Committed to using the power of poetry to move people, they have always believed in putting their money where their mouths are and, with this in mind, they are holding their first fundraiser:
Venue: Brewer's Bar, 77 Shacklewell Lane, London, E8 2EB

Poetry performances by Janine, Chip and Tim at a rally in Whitechapel's Altab Ali Park in support of striking Serco workers in Bart's hospitals.
Rhyming in support of cinema workers fighting for a living wage, better working conditions and union recognition.
I thought the pay
Was quite OK
When I first came through the door
Then I paid my rent
And it was spent
And now I want some more
The company's board
Say they can't afford
They've got no more to give
But like Olly Twist
More than subsist
I want enough to live
