Solent SolFed

We are Solent Solfed, a new local in formation from isolated members of Brighton Solfed. Brighton is extremely active and has been very supportive, striving to include us in all their events and activities. Now we need our own local to spread Anarcho-syndicalist ideas in our own communities, whilst still maintaining strong links with Brighton and other likeminded groups.

We are both syndicalists who favour direct unionism over the trade union model - supporting a culture of militant resistance and working class solidarity in the workplace and the wider community - and anarchists looking for better ways of organising.

We have chosen the name ‘Solent’ because we tend to meet around Southampton which is central for us; we actually have members in Bognor Regis, Portsmouth , Southampton and Bournemouth . We hope that as our membership grows we will spawn new locals in each of these locations and continue to work closely together in solidarity.

Please get in touch if you would like to come along and find out more!

Solent Solfed & CNT-AIT Caen

 

On the 2nd of March, Solent SolFed with comrades from Bristol and Brighton locals along with CNT-AIT Caen, Forest of Dean Anarchists, Wessex Solidarity and others, picketed Poundland in Portsmouth as part of our rolling campaign against the mendacious workfare provider (they keep staying they’ve pulled out). This particular shop had two employees working for JSA however.

Solent Solfed Members Join Two Pickets Last Week

Here are two members write ups of the pickets Solent SF were involved with last week!

Protest picket of the Communication Workers Union.

Fighting Workfare At Royal Mail

Most people will have heard about the CWU leadership endorsing the Royal Mail's participation in the workfare scheme, whilst at the same time ignoring rank and file members views on forced labour and attacks on workers rights.

Concerned posties from SOLFED, IWW, Boycott Workfare, and CWU send you the following call out, and request for solidarity.

See you on the picket!

NO TO WORKFARE AT ROYAL MAIL- APRIL 2ND 11am

Open Letter to all members of the Communication Workers Union, (CWU)

Solent Solfeds First Picket!

Solent Solfed answered the call from Boycott Workfare on Saturday morning (3rd March) and joined a picket outside Primark in Portsmouth’s Commercial Road. A small group of anarchists from Solfed, Surrey and Hants Afed, and Portsmouth Anarchists turned out alongside the local SWP group. Although the anarchists and socialists had their own specific leaflets it was good to see political differences put to the side to unite against workfare. Our leaflets were drawn up and printed by Surrey and hants Afed, (thanks guys!).
