A huge demonstration gathered in Bedford Square in Exeter today to show  support for all those forced by employers and the Government to go on strike to try and achieve fair pay and safe working conditions.

Hundreds of thousands of workers across the country, including teaching staff, civil servants, rail workers, nurses, paramedics and other care professionals are striking to try to secure appropriate pay awards and working conditions. Many have suffered years of pay freezes now struggling as the cost of living and energy prices rocket.

Exeter Labour were there in force with Councillors, candidates and supporters fully committed to supporting the workers on strike and those unable to strike, across many sectors, suffering from poor pay and conditions struggling with the cost of living crises.

Hundreds marched through Exeter to support those on strikes, the march ended in a rally at the Corn Exchange. With a capacity of 500 it still wasn’t large enough to accomodate all the demonstrators and many joined an overflow rally in Fore Street.

The message was clear Enough is Enough.
