Our thanks to Ian for this. Hundreds of women from the campaign group Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) – which should more accurately be termed Women Against State Pension Equality, because that’s what they’re actually complaining about, having the same retirement age as men, after many years of having an earlier retirement age – stopped the traffic in Parliament Square, the same place I stopped traffic for a much shorter time on 1 June 2016, protesting against the CPS / police not prosecuting the criminals who carry out MGM – video here.
One of the supporting organizations at the event was “BackTo60”, which I think we can safely assume is a keen supporter of state pension inequality.
One notable difference between WASPI stopping the traffic, and me stopping the traffic, was that none of the women were arrested, while I was. Indeed, the women received public support from mangina MPs including Stephen Morgan (Labour, Portsmouth South). The creep tweeted this:
Good to join @solent_waspi during the @WASPI_Campaign_ rally today in Parliament Square. I will continue to stand with campaigners to fight state pension injustice #notgoingaway
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
