Kings Heath Against Workfare

A local group of residents, workers and claimants has formed around Kings Heath to oppose workfare on our high streets.

You can keep up to date with them directly on facebook by liking their page: www.facebook.com/kingsheathagainstworkfare.

The first event is on Saturday (17th March) – a walk of shame around Kings Heath high street exposing the workfare profiteers.

Gather outside Poundland, on the corner of High Street and Institute Road from 1pm, to set off around 1:30pm for a walk along the high street, stopping off to expose the businesses and charities that use forced labour in their stores.

The next planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday 21st March, from 7pm-8pm at All Saints Centre, Kings Heath high street.. we are waiting for final confirmation on the date but it should be correct – just please check back on our upcoming events page, or the Kings Heath Against Workfare facebook page next week to check.
Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting.

A leaflet for Kings Heath is available to download and print

    I wonder if the rogue retailers and the illegitimate sons of corporations (charities) would be willing to paint red crosses on their shop doors to warn people that they exploit slave labour. I somehow doubt it but it might be worth asking just in case 🙂
