"We are the Lions MR MANAGER"

Check out more here on the Grunwick strike, Jayaben Desai and tour dates. Hat tip SERTUC.

I love the full quote by the strike leader Jayaben to her manager as she lead the factory walkout.

"What you are running here is not a factory, it is a zoo. But in a zoo there are many types of animals. Some are monkeys who dance on your fingertips, others are lions who can bite your head off. We are the lions, Mr. Manager."

A student friend of mine who is now a Professor in a Canadian University told me that he went to support the strike as a youngster and was horrified that he was punched in the face by a Police Officer for no good reason.
