Benefit For The Leeds Bin Strike: Ten Weeks In

binworkersThe tiny coverage that this strike has had in the news media has been a disgrace. But the bin workers of Leeds are now in their tenth week of solid strike action.

They recently rejected the council’s “final offer” with a 92% vote.

I’ll be playing for the strikers tomorrow (Fri 13 Nov) at The Casa in Hope Street, Liverpool, along with Leeds’ own Gary Kaye.

The council plans to slash wages by a third, and other councils are watching in the hope that the strikers are beaten.

The night kicks off at 7.30pm and the aim is to raise money for the strikers and their families.

It’s £10 in, or £5 concessions.

Please do come along and show your solidarity. Their struggle is our own.

    Enjoyed your set at this gig Alun, and leant your We Can Make the World Stop album off Vinny. Top stuff all round. Love The Limerick Soviet and the title song particularly.

    Keep it up mate.

    Great gig on Friday night, we were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed everything immensely, My Name Is Dessie Warren was the best song I’ve heard in years, its up there with the stuff Woodie Guthrie did, well done mate.
