UNISON, UNITE, GMB, EIS, branches and CLYDEBANK Trade Union Council are sponsoring a screening of the film “Belonging”, which has received praise from the likes of top film maker Ken Loach. It is not on general release yet but can be seen locally, for free thanks to the trade union movement.
“Belonging” is an investigative feature length documentary about where power lies in Britain.
It re-examines events surrounding three industrial disputes, Wapping, the privatisation of Royal Mail, and the dispute at Grangemouth Oil Refinery. Three governments over three decades, showing the impact of government and corporate power on democracy and human rights not just for trade unionists, but for all.
Personal stories are told by those at the centre of the disputes not only highlighting the impact of the actions of those in power on individuals and communities, but also raising the question of what lies ahead.
Pertinent indeed when we could have a socialist Prime Minister in the shape of Jeremy Corbyn before long. What will be the response of corporate Britain and the state be to that development?
“Belonging” will be shown on Thursday 7th September at 7pm in Clydebank Town Hall, 5 Hall St, G81 1UB. This is open to all trade unionists and the community at large.
We hope to have someone associated with the film along on the night to say a few words.
