Up to ten thousand public sector workers across Oxforshire's public services wil be joining the national strike in defence of pensions.  People will also be expressing their anger at the closure and privatisation of our public services, the attacks on wages, jobs and benefits and the idea that working people and the poor should suffer the the brunt of the crisis while the people who caused it continue to reap untold wealth.

 

 

On the day thousands of workers from health, education, council and civil services, plus students will be picketing and marching.

 

We urge you to not sit at home on this day but to join in and make your voiceheard so  our demands for fairness and justice will be met.
