THE GREAT GRUNWICK STRIKE
Chris Thomas (2008)
How the 1976 strike by Asian women workers, so reminiscent of the Bermondsey Uprising in 1911, attracted solidarity across the country from thousands of male white workers whose unions had previously offered women and refugees scant support.
The event also includes a short film showing the ashes of Grunwick strike leader Jayaben Desai being scattered from a boat on the Thames, not far from Cherry Garden Pier.
The screening will be followed by a debate
STARTS AT 7.30 PM, Thursday 13th October
The main film is 64 mins long
