Liverpool Solidarity Federation have called a communications blockade of workfare exploiters Holland & Barrett to coincide with their action against workfare in Liverpool today (Saturday 23rd June).
This will be the third weekend of action against workfare in the city this month and they have called for people around the UK to contact the snake oil salesmen and let them know what you think about their use of unpaid labour.
Holland & Barrett have just turned up on twitter. You can keep them busy @holland_barrett
Spread the word!

Holland & Barrett have been a target for action because they market themselves as an “ethical” retailer, all the while using unpaid labour to shore up their profits. There has been considerable pressure against them for this, and pickets across the country will continue until they stop. But even if you can’t make it to a picket, you can still take part!
The aim is to shut down their phone lines as much as possible on this day in order to cause them further disruption. They may not listen to individual complaints, but they will take notice when the sheer volume of calls coming in makes it harder to get things done!
