200,000 Strikers Protest British Civil Servant Cuts

200,000 British public sector workers are on the picket line today in a one day protest strike against Tony Blair’s “Labour” government plan to axe 100,000 of their jobs. Blair’s bunch would eliminate many services and privatize others. The Public and Commercial Services Union will follow up today’s strike and mass rallies with a two week ban on overtime and work to rule campaign. You can find out more at the PCS web site.
