Support from Terry Eagleton
The Wilson Pickets are honoured to have received the following letter of support from Terry Eagleton:
The arrogance of EBSCO Publishing, in refusing to talk with those it has deprived of their livelihoods, will appal all supporters of civil rights. Multinationals which stamp on people’s rights in their obsessive pursuit of profit need to be brought to book. Such corporations generally appeal to law and authority — unless, of course, authority rules against them, as in the recent recommendation of the Irish Labour Court, in which case they insolently ignore it. Those who refuse to take this insolence lying down are worthy of the most loyal support.
