Derby Silk Mill March

Our annual Silk Mill March will be on April 25th at 10.30 am. At this time every year we commemorate the heroic struggle of Derby workers at the Silk Mills who fought a long and bitter battle with the bosses and helped to establish the trades union movement. We remember their sacrifices and their bravery - and renew our commitment to the same fight for decent livelihoods for workers today.

There will be stalls and speakers at the Market Place, and a march will set off to the Silk Mill from there. With austerity continuing and workers across the country facing attacks on their wages, pensions and jobs, this year's march will also be a protest against the austerity which is seeing those who can least afford it paying the highest price for the chaos created by the bosses and bankers.

Bring your banners, bring your family, bring your friends!

Join us for the march and rally!

See you there!
