Burston strike school pupils

Burston strike school rally 2020

Church Green, Burston, near Diss, Norfolk

106 years since the school strike

Join the annual rally 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).

"The Burston rebellion was a revolt born in the fields, and fought by those that toiled in them."

A UK general election is coming – and it will be the fight of our lives ... our movement is the authentic voice for millions of people, for the communities of these lands. We are still the greatest force for social change that this country has witnessed and we are ready for the fight.”
