Activists from Brent Housing Action and the Haringey Solidarity Group’s “Benefits Cap” team have joined up to present a workshop on the new Welfare reform mechanisms at this year’s London Anarchist Bookfair.
This, the 25th Annual Bookfair, will be held at Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, E1 4NS on October 19th between 10am and 7pm. The workshop will be in Room G.07 between 1 and 2pm.
Both groups will be discussing the effects of the Bedroom Tax, and the HSG team will talk of their experiences of being a pilot borough for the Benefit Cap over the last 7 months. There will also be a short presentation on the forthcoming Universal Credit system which will reference courses on the subject offered by Shelter and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau as well as research done by Boycott Workfare and other radical sources.
As with all the events at the Bookfair this is free, but you are encouraged to make a donation at the main doors towards the cost of running the Bookfair.
