In response to the European call out for a day of action against capitalism on March 31st, Lincoln Underground Collective will be continuing the picketing of Workfare exploiters such as Poundland, Greggs and Dorothy Perkins.
This will follow on from the protest on Saturday 3rd which was called by Lincoln Youth Fight for Jobs which around 25 people picketed Primark, Burtons and BHS who are involved in scheme. We quickly gave out all our flyers (see Posters, download & distribute). Passersby reacted positively to our presence, lots of people approached us for a chat and some more joined us as we moved on to different shops.
So, on Saturday March 31st we will be out again this time with more banners, more flags and more flyers! The action aims to make workfare unprofitable so the bigger the crowd, the better the effect.
Actions will be happening across the country with South London Solidarity Federation promising direct action against workfare.
The time of the picket will be up soon. More events will also be announced nationally.
Make sure the government aren’t able to brush this under the carpet, keep up the pressure: we aren’t going anywhere.
