Solitarity Letter from Ken Loach

Ken Loach, film director and member of Left Unity

'I am writing to express support for those who oppose the acceptance of the savage EU austerity package and who demonstrated on 15th July. I understand from reports that the police response was brutal. This is a message of solidarity with all those who were unjustly attacked and detained. The EU leaders and international bankers care nothing for the pain and suffering they are causing. Their proposals will not work even in their own terms. This is a ruthless demonstration of class power, intended to show what happens to those who have the courage to oppose the neo-liberals. Their cruelty is matched only by their stupidity.

Solidarity with those who say 'NO'!
(Ken Loach)
