Make the wealthy pay

Full marks to UNISON's sister union, PCS for promoting and supporting this Saturday's actions by UK Uncut (http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/news_and_events/pcs_comment/index.cfm/id/328CB306-CC6F-49FB-AD50E7A095A95664).



UK Uncut activists - shamefully singled out for political punishment by the Metropolitan Police on 26 March - will be occupying banks to highlight the cost of the bank bailout and the need for tax justice.



This nonviolent direct action is an effective answer to the question "what is your alternative?" - and one which is entirely consistent with UNISON policy. With the Labour leadership still imprisoned in a fiscal straitjacket of their own design, the trade unions should be lending our full weight to campaigns which illustrate the alternative to spending cuts and attacks upon pay, conditions and pensions.
