Journey to Justice

Manchester CWU report

On 13th March we were in Manchester taking part in a CWU conference for activists thinking of standing as candidates for councils or Parliament. We ran their final session on ‘Antiracism, class solidarity and building community.’ Using some of our stories of community and workplace action and a series of activities to generate reflection, we explored how groups of workers and other activists have overcome inequalities by uniting over shared experience of wealth injustice. We considered how the legacy of colonialism has impacted on contemporary struggles over work and income and delegates shared examples of how they had been inspired and galvanised by the arts. We also had an animated discussion around the question ‘Is wealth injustice the fundamental inequality?’

Here Tania leads a role play activity creating a meeting between resident activists and councillors  over the planned closure of a local park, using selected tactics for successful campaigning.
