On 6 February, I and other members of the TUC Disabled Workers' Committee protested (in the rain!) at Tottenham Court Road station, opposing cuts and supporting the RMT/TSSA London Underground strike.
I wrote this article for my local anti-cuts campaign newsletter in Hackney in August 2010:
In October 2010, French rail workers were on strike. I sent this message of support to them.
I am writing on behalf of the London Transport Region of the National Union of Rail Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) here in the UK.
In December 2010, I signed up to this statement and campaign against 'kettling' and other repressive police treatment of protesters.

Please read the statement and consider adding your name too.
