Latin American Fiesta

It's taken me a couple of weeks to recover, but I just wanted to update people on our June 30 event, which was a massive success. I think in total around 300 people came, with a great mixture of outsourced workers, students activists and staid union types like myself. MPs John McDonnell and Frank Dobson both spoke, but there were also speeches from workers involved with the campaign, and from comrades from as far away as Zimbabwe.

There was also a lot of music and much dancing...unnamed committee members were apparently out until 6am the next morning...

Anyway, a load of photos can be found here, getting blurrier as the night goes on, and you can read the text in English and Spanish of Membership Officer Robinson's rousing speech here.
