Support For Unison in Norwich by Green Councillors

Quick report from Norwich- there was a decent percentage of people out on strike, although less than we'd hoped for (was really disappointing to see certain individuals crossing the picket line...). A couple of City Council buildings were shut down.

A couple of Green Councillors came to the main rally yesterday, which was attended by about 150 people, and Adrian Ramsay was allowed a speech to give a message of support. Interestingly the reception from crowd gathered was noticeably more enthusiastic than for any other speaker. There was no noticeable presence from any other party, although I'm told the Labour Leader of the Council sent about a 2-sentence email of support (as opposed to our detailed letter signed by all Councillors!)
