Titles design for Solidarity, a feature length documentary about a collective struggle for justice in the wake of public revelations about the clandestine methods used by corporations and police against trade unionists and activists in the UK.

In 2009, British authorities seized a database containing 3,213 files belonging to the secretive anti-union group, The Consulting Association. The database was a blacklist, detailing the names and activities of thousands of construction workers identified as so-called “troublemakers”. The discovery vindicated blacklisted workers, many of whom had endured years of unemployment and had their concerns dismissed as paranoia, and led to the formation of the Blacklist Support Group. Additional links between workplace blacklisting and undercover policing have emerged since.

A project by City Projects and Lucy Parker, who worked alongside members of the Blacklist Support Group for over four years.
