Boris Johnson’s speech on Sunday meant unsafe crowded transport on Monday. In this video, Ian Allinson explains how the government is trying to force people back to unsafe schools and workplaces without significantly changing its lockdown rules. It is relying on the huge gaps in the rules which meant many non-essential workplaces have been open throughout. Parents, school students and workers are fighting back despite a weak reaction from the Labour leadership and most union leaders.
Resisting a return to unsafe schools will be vital to prevent a large scale return to unsafe workplaces. Parents, pupils and school staff are holding an online meeting after the clapping on Thursday to organise against going back to schools before it is safe.
