Reading Pizza Hut targetted by SolFed and the IWW in anti-workfare campaign

Wed, 11/07/2012 - 19:28

In perhaps the greatest team-up since The Avengers (Emma Peel and John Steed, not that comic book superhero rubbish) members of SolFed and the IWW organised a protest and leafleting of Pizza Hut in Oxford Road, Reading, tonight at 5-30, fighting against thunder, lightning and torrential rain to make the case against workfare. Joined by members of TUC unions they leafleted the local community and found many sympathetic voices from people who had themselves been threatened with the joys of workfare. The Pizza Hut staff were happy to come and talk to us and understood why we were there and we encouraged them to send a message to their regional office to abandon the workfare scheme. They obliged by faxing one of our leaflets through to their regional officer. After giving out one hundred leaflets and spending time talking with members of the public we left but we will be back on Sunday at12 noon. The fight goes on. Give in Pizza Hut. You know it makes senseā€¦
