Hull trade union festival a great success
Lucy Nuttall, Hull Socialist Party
Hull Socialist Party members were central in organising a hugely successful trade union festival, 'Engage for Change', that took place on Saturday 22 June.
Taking the stage were a mixture of community and trade union speakers alongside local bands and artists, with a children's activity area making it a family friendly day.
Vincent and Pierre-Emmanuel, members of Gauche Révolutionnaire (the Socialist Party's counterpart in France), travelled over from France and addressed the crowds as activists in the anti-austerity Gilets Jaunes (yellow vests) protest movement.
Also inspiring to hear from was Lyn-Marie O'Hara, one of the Glasgow council workers involved in the successful strike last October for equal pay.
The festival gets bigger every year, with an estimated 5,000 people participating during the day.
Our socialist programme received an excellent response. We sold 70 copies of the Socialist and 33 copies of L'egalite - the paper of Gauche Révolutionnaire.
