Public Meeting, Norwich City Hall, 7pm, Monday Nov 1st 2010
Norfolk Coalition Against The Cuts will be holding a public meeting on the subject of the appalling cuts that were announced yesterday on our public services and welfare state.
Meeting will be chaired Dr Ian Gibson and speakers will include Councillor Alan Waters and the IWW activist from America known by many of us, John Reimann.
Reimann worked for 25 years as a union carpenter, with an 8-year break while he was a full-time organizer for a small labor/socialist group. In that capacity, he did political work in areas as different as Oakland, CA, South Central Los Angeles, and Mexico (mainly Mexico City).
He was very active in the Carpenters Union and was one of the main organizers of the mass carpenters’ wildcat strike of 1999. He was expelled from the union for life by the Carpenters International in 2000 for this role.
