So, after last week’s TUC, we’re on our way to the biggest mass strike in a generation on 30 November 2012, right? Well, neither exactly right nor exactly wrong. Before we on the left whip up ourselves into a frenzy of ‘here we go, here we go’, there are quite a few stages that need to be passed through before we get there. This means that there are a number of different ways events from here might pan out.
Compare the prospects here to the quasi-fiasco of “Occupy Wall Street”. This is the difference organizations of the working-class can (but not always do) make.
