Placards in support of Tony Cox and the right to be accompanied at jobcentres and benefit-entitlement-assessments

'Never attend anywhere official alone' is our golden rule
This Thursday 9 June at 09:30 members of Kilburn Unemployed Workers Group will be standing outside Kilburn Jobcentre, 3 Cambridge Avenue, London NW6 5AH meeting and greeting claimants as they enter and leave that building. Location map.(1) As usual, we can expect the privatised G4S staff and/or Jcp management to call the police in an attempt to remove the attention we draw to what goes on inside that building, and any police presence that arrives to realise that we are not a threat to the public and least of all to vulnerable adults and staff inside the building. (The Department for Work & Pensions are the real danger to vulnerable adults and staff and to standards of service delivery.)

Arrest abusers of vulnerable claimants, not advocates!

Tony Cox is  hero, not villain

Tony Cox is innocent

On this particular occasion, there is an added message of UK-wide solidarity. For on Thursday 9 June Scottish Unemployed Workers Network activist Tony Cox will again be hauled up in court for spurious charges. Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty is calling for Tony's supporters to attend Dundee Sheriff Court for 10am in support of Tony Cox and the right to be accompanied. Advocacy is STILL NOT a crime — Solidarity with Tony Cox June 9th(2) We cannot transport ourselves up to Dundee Sheriff Court in support of Tony's appearance there on that day, but we can get a group 'selfie' AND give some support where it's required on the same day.

Attend Maximus alone at your peril!

The prime motto of the Kilburn Unemployed Workers Group is, "Never attend anywhere official alone."
