Halloween protest for living wage at HR Owen

South Kensington, London. Tue 31 Oct 2017



 Members of United Voices of the World union and friends meet at South Kensington station for an emergency

 Halloween-themed protes the day after a dissapointing hearring

 where H R Owen and Templewood said if Angelica and Freddy didn't promise to go back to work on lousy and

 promise not to take strike action they didn't have a job.

 They work in a luxury car showroom for companies that make huge profits but won't pay a living wage

 Angelica and Victor in a blonde wig

 

 Petros arrives and speaks about what the employers have demanded, which everyon is apalled at

 and the protesters set off to walk down the road to the showroom. But they have been seen on the way

 and find the doors have been locked when they arrive

 so they protest outside

 at first on the pavement

 

 

 

 but soon they decide to block the road

 

 'LUxury Cars for the Rich... Poverty Pay for Us'

 'Justice for Cleaners'

 A car tries to drive through the protesters, but people stand in front of it

 Jane Nicholl of Class War holds out her hands

 

 and tells the driver exactly what she thinks of him

 'Re-instate Angelica and Freddy - striking is a right!!!!'

 'No Longer Invisible'

 Various friends of the UVW have come to support the strikers, including some students and durmmers

 

 

 Angelica speaks

 

 and is followed by Freddy

 and others

 A number of IWGB members have come to give their support

 Another car tries to push through the protest - but is stopped

 

 

 

The protesters march off to another protest for workers at the Royal College of Music, but I need ot get home
