According to Britain’s Socialist Workers Party, November 30 was….”a historic day. Britain’s biggest strike since 1926 saw the working class march firmly onto centre stage of the political arena.
Over two and a half million struck. It dealt the biggest blow yet to the government’s attempt to make workers pay for capitalism’s crisis.
Towns and cities across the country saw huge rallies that brought workers together to defy the cuts.
Over half a million marched — including some 10,000 in Dundee, 20,000 in Bristol and 50,000 in London...”
Below, British Socialist Workers Party leader Alex Callinicos (who recently visited Occupy Wall Street) speaks on “After 30 November how can we bring down the government?” and his belief that Tahrir Square Egypt was the beginning of a worldwide revolutionary process – perhaps more significant than the Russian revolution of 1917.
