Solidarity - British Worker


Adam Walker Promises to Take His Case to the “Highest Level”

A British National Party (BNP) member and teacher facing charges of religious intolerance at the General Teaching Council for England (GTC) says he will take the case to the “highest level” if found guilty.

Theoretically, Adam could become the first to be struck off for religious ‘intolerance’ after being accused of posting comments critical of Islam on the internet while using a school laptop.

His representatives from the Nationalist workers union Solidarity, of which he is President, are studying sentences handed out by the GTC so they can take action in the event that he is convicted...continued



Solidarity is a new Union. For the first year of existence it did very little under a lacklustre, demotivated leadership whose commitment and loyalty was open to question. It was a great idea - a Nationalist Union for all British workers. A Union that would provide an alternative to the TUC sell-outs. Little progress was made in the first year.
Since a vibrant new leadership emerged under our charismatic new President Adam Walker the Union has grown.
But we want more. Much more. Our leadership is ambitious and dares to dream.

Solidarity has members from all Parties and ethnic backgrounds.
At elections we might vote differently and even campaign for different parties but we are united on workplace issues.
Most people are able to wear different hats!


A message from Patrick Harrington, our General Secretary.

Adam Walker
Adam Walker
Union President
Scarcely a day goes by without a report crossing my desk of one group or another of workers being exploited. I was shocked to read recently that many construction sites in Merseyside were putting the lives of builders at risk. In just one day of 14 sites visited by Health and Safety 13 failed to come up to scratch. Today I read about how Restaurant owners are using legal loopholes to pocket money given as tips for their staff. Examples of the way that employers are putting profit before ethics can be seen all around us.
That's why we need Unions - to stop the exploitation and stand-up for the workers.
More than this we need a Union that doesn't collude with Management in 'partnership' deals. A Union that is clear as to its function and who it represents. Sadly in many places Union Reps have sold-out or given up. They often have more in common with the management than their fellow workers. Being a Union Rep in some places is an alternative way of climbing the promotion ladder. I say it is time for this to change.
Solidarity exists to represent workers not to dine or socialise with Management.
We often send in Reps who don't work for the same company.
The company, therefore, has no leverage over them - it can't offer promotion or other inducements or threaten career trouble. They have no power over our Reps.
When I hear from Posties about their discontent with the CWU I am saddened.
There are many good people in such Unions. People with the interests of the ordinary worker at heart. Sadly they are out-weighed by those who collude with a political and economic class estranged from the concerns of ordinary folk.

Bread and Butter Union Work
.What kind of cases does Solidarity handle for members?
Most members know that we defend those persecuted on account of their political beliefs. These tend to be high-profile cases.
They are by no means the norm, however. Most of our cases are bread and- butter work for any Trade Union.
Below we give some recent examples. We have not given details of names and workplaces to maintain confidentiality.

The First Issue
Solidarity urges Posties to vote "No" Solidarity has some that hold dual membership with the CWU. We have also been contacted by some posties who are not yet members of ours asking our opinion of the deal and advice on which way to vote.
Here it is - the deal between the CWU union and Royal Mail to end the dispute over pay, pensions and conditions is a sell-out.
It is surrender, a capitulation to a management agenda. It is a betrayal. 130,000 workers took eight days of official strike action but the union’s executive voted to accept the offer and recommend it to the membership.
Only five out of 14 executive members voted to reject it. The deal does not meet the demand for decent pay and pensions.
Nor does it remove the threat implied by Royal Mail's demand for 'total flexibility'. Continued

UNION SAYS FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION MUST BE PROTECTED !

The Solidarity Trade Union has criticised the suggestion made by Ed Balls, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families that members of the British National Party (BNP) and other groups may be banned from working as teachers.

In September he asked former Chief Inspector of Schools Maurice Smith to review the current safeguards to protect children from discrimination and the promotion of racist views and to consider whether members of organisations with such, alleged, views be banned from teaching.
UK Brains Today
UK Brains Today !!

As part of that review Mr. Smith is taking representations from interested parties including Trade Unions such as Solidarity. Mr Smith took oral evidence from the Union at the end of last month. The Union will also be submitting written evidence.

After submitting the Union's views on the matter General Secretary of Solidarity Patrick Harrington stated:-

"We are concerned that the review was considering measures which conflicted with the right to freedom of association, which is guaranteed in global and regional human rights instruments. In addition to these general guarantees case law generally opposes any limitation on the right to freedom of association which is not necessary or proportionate."

He added "Solidarity would rigorously oppose any restriction on Employment on grounds of belonging to a legal association, whatever that may be, and is already preparing challenges to existing acts of political discrimination in the Police and Prison Service. Our own investigation indicates that there is no pressing social need to add to existing measures which already safeguard children from political indoctrination or discrimination. The need for the review was originally framed as a response to a growth in electoral support for the BNP. We are urging the Secretary of State to look at the evidence and not to make a costly error in pursuit of a vendetta against political rivals. I note that the Scottish Government has already made it clear that they see no need for additional measures."

"Solidarity is arguing the case for freedom of expression and democracy. We seek to persuade. If logical argument does not however persuade we are prepared to take action to crash the New McCarthyite bandwagon. Our traditional rights and freedoms will be robustly defended."

Solidarity has already carried out research (through Freedom of Information requests) into political activity within schools and found that LEAs report little or no problem. The ongoing results of this research can be viewed at www.whatdotheyknow.com.

The Lemming Effect
Or why the very people being damaged the most by 'Nu Labour' Continue to vote Labour !!
From http://www.rense.com

They are victims of a psychological affliction known as "the lemming effect". Lemmings are small rodents who have been known to follow each other as they charge to their deaths into raging rivers or off of cliffs. Lemminghood is an innate psychological phenomenon, present in most mammals and observable in common people as well the most sophisticated and educated elites. Lemminghood is not an intellectual phenomenon - it is psychological. As such, no socio-economic class is immune to its strangulating effect. A grant-seeking university scientist can be a lemming just as much as a fashion obsessed teen-age girl. One blindly follows the latest trendy theory while the other blindly follows the latest trendy clothing style. What's the difference? Neither can resist the force of nature.

Ethnic Recruitment

The power to fit in with one's social peers can be irresistible.
To a human lemming, the logic behind an opinion doesn't count as much as the power and popularity behind an opinion.
Man, like lemming, behaves collectively.
And it could be no other way.

Naturally, the individual must be equipped with this trait. Otherwise, the smallest steps toward civilization could never have been made.
Lemminghood is a survival trait, an inborn instinct in the majority of people.
However, as with all natural phenomena, this tendency can be manipulated and used for harmful purposes.

You can fool some of the 'Sheeple' all of the time,
You can fool all of the 'Sheeple' some of the time,
But you can't fool all of the 'Sheeple' all of the time.
Sean Bryson

It is this lemming effect which enables entire segments of a society to lose their sense of judgment all at the same time.
This research paper will likely be wasted on many lemmings.
For lemmings, denial is a basic psychological defense mechanism used to not only shield themselves from unpleasant realities, but also to reassure themselves that they will still fit within the acceptable range of opinion held by their peer group.

Lemmings are absolutely terrified at the thought of being labeled as an "extremist" or a "conspiracy theorist". At all costs, their beliefs must always be on the "right" side of the issue and conform within the boundaries of their lemming peers. Lemmings simply cannot bear the burden of responsibility, or the discomfort, which comes with thinking independently. They'll resist any efforts to change their misguided beliefs with all their mental energy.

The Enemy Within

A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims,
and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. ***
