The UK today feels like a pretty dismal place. The moral compass seems to have gone solidaritymissing from our politics. We are facing some tough years ahead, and it’s important to take some time to be sad, to reflect, and look after yourself and your loved ones. We need comfort. But there is hope!

If you are reading this, and if you are part of IWGB, you are part of the solution. We already know that by joining together we can overcome incredible odds. That should give us all some hope today. And we will keep fighting, whatever they throw at us.

After the mourning is over, we need to regroup. It’s time to pick ourselves up, shake ourselves down and get back to it. If ever a grassroots union was needed, it’s now.

Things are obviously going to be tough for a good while, but believe: we can do this!

The resistance starts now.
