Striking dock workers + revolting RTS types

Watched the Jimmy McGovern film Dockers today. It’s a dramatisation of the long strike at Merseyside docks, in which dockworkers fought against intolerable conditions and the drive towards casualisation. The film was cowritten by some of the striking dockers and members of the Women of the Waterfront support organisation, and is worth a look.

Anyway, found a nice video of the big ‘March For Social Justice’/’Never Mind The Ballots’ event in London in April 1996, co-organised by the Liverpool dockers and Reclaim The Streets. Some familiar faces…
