Please join us at the demo against welfare reform: 1pm, One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Saturday 5th April
Guest blog by Pilgrim Tucker of Unite Community
On 5th April, the 1st anniversary of the welfare reform act we are holding a demonstration against the bedroom tax and other welfare reforms.
'Welfare reforms' fuel evictions
Facebook event here: please join and invite friends: https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/263575097139874/?fref=ts
Can you help to build this demo? Next organising meeting Tuesday 11th March, 6.30pm, Unite, 33-37 Moreland Street, EC1V 8BB
We will be asking members to help us build for this demo and suggesting activities such as:
-Contacting local groups in their area, asking them to support the demonstration, help publicise it, and bring their members (this could include anti cuts groups, trades council, pensioner groups, tenants and residents associations, soup kitchens, food banks, churches and any others). (I can forward a draft motion for trades councils)
-Send a letter to your local paper, ask other local groups you have contacted to sign it, saying why the demo is important. (I can forward a draft letter to give some suggestions)
-Leaflet or hold a stall at your local jobcentre, housing office, in your estate or local high street.
-Put posters in your window, ask local shops to put flyers up
-Do you know any performers who would like to sing, play some music, or entertain us? Let us know
-Impacted by the reforms want to speak at the demo? Let us know, as we want to make sure that those affected can speak about what’s going on.
The location for the demonstration, One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, is known as the wealthiest residence in the world,  (the 85 flats sell for billions, only a few are regularly lived in or pay any council tax, and most are registered in the name of mysterious companies based in offshore tax havens).
Global wealthy gobble up London
Please contact me for leaflets and posters.
Best wishes
