10 July saw the biggest strike in Britain since the 30 November 2011 pensions strike.
The strike, which involved hundreds of thousands of teachers, council workers, civil servants, fire fighters, and other public sector staff, shut down schools and local government services across the country. Workers’ Liberty members participating in the strike sent reports to Solidarity.
In Leeds, activists say the number of pickets matched the levels of the 2011 strike. Around 4,000 attended a city centre rally.
