Southampton Says no to Workfare

Youth fight for jobs activists, Socialist Students and Socialist Party members from across Hampshire converged on Southampton High Street on Saturday, to demonstrate against Primark, McDonalds, Boots, and all the other massive corporations taking part in the workfare slave labour scheme

Youth fight for jobs activists, Socialist Students and Socialist Party members from across Hampshire converged on Southampton High Street on Saturday, to demonstrate against Primark, McDonalds, Boots, and all the other massive corporations taking part in the workfare slave labour scheme (all conveniently located inside West Quay Shopping Centre). Young people took turns on the mega phone, explaining the injustice of the scheme, and gathering a crowd of supporters. The demo was covered by the Solent University student newspaper and around 1000 leaflets were given out. Most importantly, many young people signed up to show their support for the campaign, with others pledging to support TUSC in the upcoming local elections.
