The dispute on Southern Rail continued with a 48-hour strike on 7-8 September. The action by Southern RMT guards was solid and determined once again. Pickets at Victoria station in London were joined by Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) protesters as part of their week of action (see page 11). They made the point that guards on the train makes their journeys safer and easier and in some cases possible in the first place. The picket line at Victoria and stations in south London was also supported by the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) and Socialist Party members.
