Trade Union Pledge in support of the St Paul's Occupiers sign now

Trade Union Pledge in support of the St Paul's OccupiersLaunched by the initial signatories given below at a general assembly of the St Paul's Occupation on the evening of the 27th October 2011.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++'As trade unionists we express our support and admiration for the activists taking part in the occupation at St Paul's. We believe that they deserve the support of all those who think that we need a fairer and more just society.'The occupiers represent the rage against the bankers and a government that puts the interests of the rich before the interests of ordinary people.'We welcome the occupation’s statement giving support to the public sector pensions strike on 30th November. The support that the occupiers have given to the demonstrations by electricians facing huge attacks to their pay and conditions has also been magnificent.'We support Reverend Giles Fraser, a man of principle, forced to resign due to his opposition to the possible threats of violence against the occupiers. His resignation must not be taken as a green light for the police to step in to clear the occupation.'We pledge to stand with the occupiers against any attempt to physically remove them.'The right-wing media and politicians may seek to vilify the occupiers, but we stand firmly with them. We are heartened by the growth of a new, young and vibrant movement that, like us, seeks a better society - one that puts human need before bankers' greed'.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Initial Signatures (all in a personal capacity):Mark Campbell, UCU National Executive Committee, and London Metropolitan University UCUJess Edwards, Assistant Secretary, Lambeth NUTIan Bradley, Unite London Rank & File CommitteeAndy Reid, PCS National Executive CommitteeNick Grant, NUT National Executive CommitteeRichard McEwan, UCU National Executive Committee, and Tower Hamlets College UCUSimon Hester, Prospect, Vice-chair, HSE BranchJeni Reid, PCS, Asst Branch Secretary, HSE National BranchRachel Eborall, Unison East London Mental Health BranchMatt Saywell, GMB Holborn Branch Secretary, and GMB London Regional CouncilKeith Crane, PCS, DEFRA Group ExecutiveCraig Farr, Lambeth NUT LGBT OfficerUrsla Hawthorn, NUT Waltham ForestLuke Evans, Goldsmiths UCU Executive CommitteeDes Freedman, Goldsmiths UCU Executive CommitteeKen Muller, Islington NUT Assistant SecretaryMandy Brown, UCU Branch Secretary, Lambeth CollegePeter Coville, Vice-chair, Reading College UCUJake Douglas, Asst Branch Secretary, CONEL UCUJim Wolfrys, UCU National Executive Committee, and Kings College UCUKelvin Smith, Queen Mary University London UCUCharlie Kimber, NUJMatthew Myatt, NUJ Hampshire ChapelRichard Willis, GMB RedbridgeMaureen Taylor, GMB Redbridge
