Picturehouse Strike for Living Wage

East Dulwich Picturehouse, London. Sat 27 May 2017
 


 I arrived on Lordship Lane as the supproters of the PIcurehouse strikers wee getting out their banners

 The pavement outside the cinema was narrow, so they stood on the other side of the road

 

While a picket remained outside the cinema 

 Aminata Sellu, Workers Revolutionary Party General Election candidate for Camberwell & Peckham

 Southwark Invest in Council Housing and Southwark Trades Council had brought their banners

 And the Picturehouse workers strung a long banner 'Boycott Picturehouse' between trees

 

 

 

 

 

 The BECTU Official Picket

 

 Striking workers come out of the cinema and are greeted by those outside

 Some join the picket

 

 

 others the protest across the street

 'No Dough No Show' Cineworld makes huge profits - £83.8 million - and can afford to pay a living wage

 The picket hands out leaflets to people walking by

 

 

  Aminata Sellu, Workers Revolutionary Party General Election candidate for Camberwell & Peckham

 She got 131 votes but Harriet Harman was returned with 44,665.
