Bands and entertainers wanted for a gig
« on: April 14, 2009, 12:58:34 AM »
Help the Belfast Visteon/Ford workers on their Sit-In
THE FOLLOWING IS A RELEASE FROM ANTO O'KANE - PLEASE READ AND SEE IF YOU CAN SUPPORT IN ANY WAY. Variety acts - comedian, jesters, clowns, magic acts... are required as there will probably be a few of the workers' families there with kids etc.

There are 200 workers at the Visteon (Ford) manufacturing plant in Finaghy in Belfast who have been made redundant without any notice. They were told that they had to leave the plant immediately and that they would have limited redundancy packages. They decided to occupy the factory and are now fighting to save the jobs that many of them have had for over twenty years. They have been there for ten days and intend to fight to save as many jobs as possible - but at worst they will stay until a much better redundancy package is offered.... Read More

We would like to organise a support gig for the workers up at the factory. The proposed date is Saturday April 18th.

They have a small vocal PA for announcements in the canteen where most of the mass meetings take place so the gig will be "unplugged" ie you can bring small amps - but mostly it would be a quieter performance.

Anyone who would like to be part of this please contact Gordon on SKYPETMPTAG0 or Anto on SKYPETMPTAG1.
