The Economic Justice Project have put together some excellent videos featuring the voices of those involved in huge strikes and protests over the last 50 years. Do go and check them out over at their website We will be featuring a few of their videos here as they provide some excellent insight into the ways people have fought against injustice before and what they faced, and we will also feature an interview with the organisers in the coming weeks.  

St Pancras Rent Strike 1960: Ken talks about his role in the St Pancras rent strike, tenants associations resisted rent increases by withholding their rents, and when some were threatened with eviction they barricades themselves inside their flats.
