Touring action

A bus load of workers from the distribution center in mangere came into auckland to support striking cinema workers at village sky city cinemas this evening. The cinema workers are on minimum wage and are striking for higher wages and an end to youth rates. It was awesome to see the workers from mangere standing side by side with the cinema workers. The picket was incredibly upbeat and i got to meet some awesome people. The photos are not the best quality unfortunatly but you get the idea :)

a few chants used at the event "when workers rights are under attack - stand up fight back"
"what do we want? - more pay when do we want it? now"
"From mangere to auckland workers strike for workers rights"
