Ruin the LibDems' weekend: shut down workfare in Brighton
Sat, 22/09/2012 - 10:59
The Liberal Democrat conference is being held in Brighton on Saturday 22nd September 2012 – there will be a large demonstration organised by Brighton Stop the Cuts Coalition and Brighton Trades Council.
To coincide with this, Brighton Solidarity Federation, Brighton Benefits Campaign and Brighton Uncut are calling for a day of action in Brighton against workfare – instead of ineffectually “having our say” and being ignored by the junior coalition partner, we should physically shut down a high profile coalition policy.
We are aiming to use a diversity of tactics on the day – from static or roving pickets outside shops, to UK Uncut style occupations, to whatever anyone else fancies getting up to. We will distribute a list of workfare targets and their locations (see attached) – when the march ends we will head into town and try and shut down as many of them as we can for as long as we can.
Meet at 12 for the March from the Level to the Conference Centre or meet at 2pm at the Clock Tower. See attached flyer for a map of workfare exploiters.
