Re-blogged from Hastings Anarchists.
On Saturday Brighton Solidarity Federation were joined by Brighton Benefits Campaign on our first picket in the national campaign against Workfare profiteers Poundland. Over the course of two hours we handed out a thousand leaflets and struck up many conversations with the public at their North Street store. This follows the high court ruling that the DWP were within the law to force two unemployed workers out of voluntary work and into unpaid labour at the store.
The EDL are holding a national demo in Walthamstow (London) this Saturday. The usual lefty and religious suspects are organising a counter mobilisation.
Anti Fascist Network groups will also be present. Anyone not wanting to stand in a police cordon and listen to speeches from wannabe politicians should contact their local AFN aligned group, or just head into the area with your mates and see what’s on. Stay mobile, stay safe.
For working class unity against fascism!
From 8.30pm to 12.30pm
