Ken Loach sends solidarity message to striking French workers

Sunday 5 June 2016

Ken Loach sent a message to striking workers blockading the oil refinery in Le Havre. The video below the text of Ken Loach’s greeting shows the response when those messages were read to a mass meeting of workers.

“At last, workers are fighting back against attacks on their job security, wages and conditions.

In Britain we have long experience of politicians who call themselves socialist yet who act as servants of the big corporations. They want a docile workforce that can be hired and fired at will. This is what Capitalism has always demanded.

Through your struggle we can see that another Europe is possible, based on mutual support and co-operation, where all can work with dignity and be properly rewarded.

Solidarity with the French workers!”
