107 years since the school strike

Join the 2021 annual rally on Sunday 5 September 2021 to celebrate the longest strike in history: Schoolchildren 'went on strike' in 1914 to support their teachers, sacked for organising agricultural workers. Join Unite members and many more for food (or bring a picnic if you wish), drink, entertainment and speakers from across the union movement. Travel coaches are organised by a number of different organisations - contact the organisers for information where available. Dedicated car and coach parking is available in Burston. Nearest railway station is Diss (4 miles).
