Underground strike

It goes without saying that the tube workers strike is to be supported. Their struggle against bastardmangement is a microcosm of how the whole country is run. The elites make off with the money and in the long run, workers' wages and conditions are reduced and their plight vilified in the dreadful right wing MSM. On another, metaphorical, level the strike takes place out of sight in an unseen yet vital distributional organ of the capitalist system. It is repressed and its functioning transfered to other less efficient (strike busting) techniques. The repressed cannot be crushed for ever. The violence inflicted on them will return, magnified, to the surface.
