    Message from Workers Climate Action:

    The Workers Climate Action minibus is heading to Vestas from London on Friday evening, coming back on Sunday.
    Solidarity is being called for and places are going fast – call Maddy on 07954251724 or Bex 07971710797 if you want a place.
    Cost: £10 return

    p.s. we are looking for TU sponsorship to put on these minibuses. Put a motion though your trade union branch to get them to support WCA. If you want more information or a speaker, contact Bob 07843945005
