Cuts, trade unions and the movement

Coalition of Resistance supporters: London, 30 November
This is the second of four brief selections of my writing published on Luna17 and Counterfire this year.

Austerity has been (and continues to be) the dominant domestic political issue. Most of these posts concern, in different ways, the opposition to cuts: from contradictions in the unions to the case for European co-ordination. A number of arguments about politics and tactics in the movement will undoubtedly become even more important in 2012.
