We've been receiving messages of support from NUJ members and members of other unions all over the country. We would like to say thanks and show you some of those messages:

Dear Newsquest South London, we would like to wish you all the best on your 48-hour strike tomorrow.
We are just going through our third round of redundancies in two-and-a-half years.
This time the production of our weekly papers is being moved to Bradford, 90 miles away, and we are losing seven journalists in the processs on a "voluntary" basis.
Our chapel went on strike for two days in January in protest at the previous round of redundancies.
Although the action did not stop the loss of two journalists then, it gave us a voice and we were able to make known to the public our concerns about the impact on the quality of our papers. 
The very best of luck!

Jackie Craft, joint Mother of Chapel, on behalf of  Darlington NUJ Chapel, North-East
