London 21 August, big demonstration supporting striking postal workers


This video from Britain is called Holbeach 4th Royal Mail Strike Day with Louise two scoops!

‘Another brilliant strike day at Holbeach Delivery Office and massive support shown by CWU members. How much longer can the twats at the top let this mess continue whilst the public wait for the post? If bosses get their way, you will see less postpeople, later deliveries and post at tea time. Is that what you want Holbeach?’

Music: ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’!
