Former MG Rover workers yesterday sought to remind politicians about their plight by staging a rally outside the Longbridge plant.
Up to 60 people gathered opposite the Birmingham site to highlight their concerns about the future of more than 5,000 employees made redundant when the company collapsed last month.
Organiser Annil Chandra, who worked at the plant for 20 years, stressed that the event was nonpolitical and said he was pleased with the turnout.
The 43-year-old said: "It was never meant to be a protest or a demonstration. It was a gathering of people to show support for one another and put a signal out to politicians to say 'You're not going to forget us, you're not going to walk away'."
The Bishop for Birmingham the Rt Rev Dr John Sentamu and local historian Professor Carl Chinn - who was instrumental in the fight to save Rover in 2000 - addressed the crowd, which gathered in Cofton Park opposite the plant's main Q gate, and offered their support.
