The Week of Action Against Workfare begins on March 18th. Already several events are planned in Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and London.
Almost everyday new charities and companies pull out of forced labour. Workfare is wobbling as the public says no to unpaid work. Join the week of action and help bring an end to workfare for good!
Actions can be large or small, read a successful example of a two person action against workfare
