Victory! Government defeated over forests sell-off
The government's u-turn on plans to sell off our forests is testimony to the fact that, when effectively organised, people power can win.
Not only did
get over 533,000 signatures to oppose the sell-offs, they also managed to
a powerful and diverse array of forces in doing so.
The victory highlights something else; it show that this government can be defeated.
And if they can be overturned on the forests, they can certainly be overturned on issues like their assault the NHS and the rest of the welfare state.
