(en) Britain, Egham and Staines Workfare Pickets Report

Date Sat, 12 May 2012 11:56:23 +0300


On 1st May, as part of International Worker’s Day, Staines Anarchists embarked on an anti-workfare tour in Egham and Staines. Tesco, WHSmith, the Jobcentre and McDonald’s were all picketed for the part they play in the workfare schemes. ---- Several hundred leaflets detailing the nature of workfare were distributed and for the most part locals were interested to hear about what workfare involves and what it means for workers. ---- Many locals were surprised to hear that this kind of scheme, that often allows businesses free labour, takes place. One person commented, “Forced, unpaid work?! Sounds like slavery to me”. ---- But Mayday for Staines Anarchists wasn’t all work(fare) and no play. In the evening the group met up with other local activists for a Mayday celebration.
