Appeal fund for injured activist

Submitted by AWL on 27 May, 2013 - 10:47

Salford TUC has launched an appeal fund for George Tapp, a retired construction worker who suffered head injuries and two broken legs when he was run over during an anti-blacklisting action in Manchester.

Police claim George climbed onto the car’s bonnet, but witnesses say the driver was “driving like a lunatic”, and that his actions seemed obviously deliberate.

Activists from the Blacklist Support Group and the Unite Construction Rank-and-File have been organising a series of actions around the country to highlight the issue of blacklisting in the construction industry.

To support George’s fund, make cheques payable to “Salford TUC George Tapp Appeal” and send to Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, 84-86 Liverpool Road, Eccles, Salford, M30 0WZ.
