Reports from Cork from the General Stike
Strikes took off across Cork city and county this morning as workers took direct action to stop the Government's attack on wages and conditions.
Despite desperate wind and rain, pickets were out early and in force this morning across Cork city and county. Workers were striking back against the Government and its cosy plan to make workers pay for the crisis the Government and the bosses have have dropped the country in. Reports indicate widespread support and effective picket right across the public service. In some areas due to the flooding crisis that has enveloped part of the county, pickets has not taken place in order to assist with the alleviation of hardship – particularly to the elderly, the sick and those with young families.
