Inspiring Young Members- #oct20 A tale of two Cities

I was at a protest holding a banner whilst trying to tweet- a pretty difficult thing to do!
RMT young members played a key role in organising for the demonstration against austerity and to promote all this hard work I was snapping the moment and sharing with the world. Little did I know I had gained a new follower all the way up in Scotland and he too was a RMT young member who had not been involved with the young members group but was at the Glasgow demo.
