Voices from the factory occupations

Posted by Left Luggage on April 23, 2009

For activists in London there looks to be an interesting and potentially inspiring public meeting tomorrow with speakers from the Visteon factory occupations. The meeting, organised by the Socialist Party, takes place at 7.30pm on Thursday, April 23, and features:

  • Frank Jepson, Unite convenor at Basildon Visteon (also a No2EU candidate for the Eastern region in the forthcoming European elections).
  • Kevin Nolan, Unite convenor at Enfield Visteon.
  • Rob Williams, Unite convenor at Linamar (formally Visteon), in Swansea.
  • Speakers have also been invited from Belfast Visteon.

The event is in Room 101, University of London Union (ULU), Malet Street, WC1E 7HY. The nearest tubes are Euston and Euston Square.
