Socialist campaigns in Merseyside


The Cammell Laird occupation, 1984 and the Wallesey Election, 1987

In the 1980s Lol Duffy, a Socialist Organiser supporter (a predecessor to Workers' Liberty), was a part of two important struggles. The first, the occupation of the Cammell Laird Shipyard in 1984, where Lol and other workers occupied their workplace in order to save their jobs and the jobs of future generations. The second, Labour's campaign in Wallesey in 1987, where Lol came within 300 votes of beating a Tory minister in what was thought to be a safe seat.
This deal includes our pamphlets on both of these historic struggles, telling their stories and exploring their lessons for today.
