Subject: Re: [YUFORUM] REPORT FROM THE PICKET LINES
ALL IS IN GOOD HANDS AT SHOREHAM
Shoreham is the closest to what one can imagine as being the perfect
picket line. Two gate captains, one male, one female dressed in their
orange and yellow security jacket monitor and marshall the line with
constance and energy. Shoreham is a gate in/gate out line. One shift
leader per street side keep the car in control. Calling the openings and
the closing in good method, and the line moves with harmony. The two gate
captains talk to their line, keeping them aware of everything happening.
Including the entrance and exit of visitors to the line. At a certain
moment we even had a session of Exercices & Slogans. "Up, up, up with the
wages. Down, down, down with the tuition fees!"
The drivers were particularly supportive. Bringing donuts and honking
encouragements. Go walk Shoreham. You will encounter cheer and security.
All is in good hands over there. One of the gate captains is even bilingual.
En avant la barricade Shoreham!
