NEW YEAR MESSAGE from Blacklist Support Group

A massive THANK YOU to everyone for your support of the past 12 months. None of us could have done this on our own. It's been a very busy year in the fight against blacklisting. There are too many people to name individually but 2013 has seen impressive action on Crossrail, the Scottish Affairs Select Committee, the High Court, Local Authorities banning firms from public contracts, Shrewsbury Pickets, Fiddlers Ferry hardship fund, press exposure of police collusion, TUC Day of Action, environmental activists, union conferences, Carillion banned from Labour Party conference, BBC Panorama documentary, Reel News video activism, construction safety, Employment Tribunals and Leverage. We have seen international solidarity from Australia, USA, Sweden, France, Spain, Holland, Canada, Belgium, Brazil, South Africa and beyond. Blacklisted workers exercising our democratic right to protest have been assaulted by company thugs - George Tapp suffered two fractured knees and was hospitalized for months - fortunately he is now fit again. But we continue our fight in court, in parliament, in the media and most importantly on building sites. We have closed down Oxford Street, Park Lane and Earls Court in the biggest wave of mass civil disobedience in any UK industrial dispute for decades - and we will continue until we win justice and fully expose the blacklisting conspiracy. End of year round up by Hazards magazine: Wherever you are in the world - Happy new year
