We just posted an emergency episode in support of the current sit-in that is being staged by the former Debenhams workers on Patrick Street Cork on the 153rd day of their strike action for a fair redundancy package and for workers rights. I spoke to Carol Bridgeman who is one of 8 workers in the Patrick Street store having gained access to the building yesterday. We discussed the lead up to the strike, the demands of the workers, the personal toll that the strike is taking and some of the sacrifices being made to keep the strike going. They are planning to come out of the stort tomorrow at 1pm and there will be a rally of support outside the Patrick Street store when they come out. Get down and support them if you can.
