A UK-wide Week of Action Against Workfare has been called on 7-14 July. This update from Liverpool shows some of the actions taking place in just one city in the build up to the week. Let us know what you’re planning!
To kick off a rolling series of pickets and occupations in Liverpool, leading up to the UK-wide Week of Action Against Workfare on 7-14 July, we are holding another day of action in Liverpool City Centre on Sat 9th June.
This will be followed by Combat Workfare actions on:
Saturday 16 June – Wavertree Combat Workfare
Saturday 23 June – Liverpool City Centre Combat Workfare
Saturday 30 June – Wavertree Combat Workfare
Saturday 7 July – Liverpool City Centre Combat Workfare
All targets will be announced on the day and a series of mid-week actions through June & July will be announced nearer the time.
We call on everyone who stands opposed to the government’s workfare schemes, and the attempt to undermine the rights and conditions of all workers, to join us in direct-action against forced unpaid labour.
The message to every workfare provider in Liverpool is simple: IF YOU EXPLOIT US, WE WILL SHUT YOU DOWN! Help us make that slogan a reality.
