With Banners Held High 2021
I am writing to let you know that this year’s With Banners Held High event is taking place virtually on Saturday 15th May at 11am. The theme of this year’s event is ‘The past we inherit – the green future we build’ and speakers include RMT President Michelle Rodgers.
In addition, a range of fringe events are taking place, which you can register online for here - https://linktr.ee/WBHH
Fringe topics include ‘One million climate jobs’, ‘The right to protest’ and ‘Organising for the Climate Emergency’.
Organisers of With Banners Held High would welcome greetings from branches who would have attended with their banners.
Please send photos of your banners with a message and they will post on their Facebook page and may also include them in the online procession.
Email these by 8 May, but please send earlier if you can.
A few NUM banners will be available to see in person in the Burton Street windows of Wakefield MDC building, Wakefield One, from 7 May.
Please do all you can to support this important Trade Union event.
