Star Wars Strike Picket Picturehouse

Hackney Picturehouse, London. Thu 14 Dec 2017



 A few BECTU members were picketing the cinema where the latest Star Wars film was to open later that evening

 They talked to people coming in and out of the cinema. Some sympathised with the workers and there were

 were cheers when some decided they would not cross the picket line

 Other workers and supporters were gathering a few yards away

 with a few holding placards

 

 and others handing out leaflets to people walking along the pavement

 More people were due to arrive later and the protest was expecting customers with tickets for Star Wars to

 start arriving later in the evening

 Rob Williams and others from the National Shop Stewards Network had came to support the strikers

 

 The flier being handed out had the message 'Always Let Your Conscience Be Your GUide'

 

 Some of the placards were simple messages 'Living Wage 4 Picture House Staff' and 'Living Staff Living Wage'

 

 

 'Poverty Wages are Horror'

But others used quotations from films such as 'The Dude Minds Man! This Just Won't Stand'
