Public services have been on strike in the UK. The government is requiring that they accept cuts in their living standards so as not to start an inflationary spiral. That this inflationary upsurge has nothing to do with wages but instead is due to speculation and increased capitalist competition is not mentioned. How long will the working class put up with this kind of derisory treatment? Strikes ought not to be a unionist ploy to get the workers to let off steam, but opportunities to organise and prepare for the coming blows directed at us. There are strikes all over the world. The crisis is global.
