Event description

Description

Blacklisting in the UK construction industry impacted thousands of workers who were labelled 'troublemakers' for speaking out and secretively denied employment. Activists uncovered alarming links between workplace blacklisting and undercover policing. SOLIDARITY follows meetings between activists and law students, brought together for the film, revealing the determination of a community working together to find a route to justice.

SOLIDARITY was made by visual arts organisation City Projects and filmmaker Lucy Parker, who has been working alongside members of the Blacklist Support Group for over four years. The project has generated several short films, exhibitions and events.

The screening is hosted by Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn CLP and will be followed a discussion event with:

  • Maria Fyfe (Former MP for Glasgow Maryhill)
  • Ian Davidson (Former MP for Glasgow South West and Chair of the Scottish Affairs Select Committee)
  • Stevie Dillon (Unite Scotland's Lead construction sector officer)
