Against the scrapping of housing benefit for under-21s: Bradford, 8 April

While there hasn’t been much in the way of organised opposition to the disgusting legislation that’s taken away housing benefit for 18-21 year olds, there does seem to be some signs of resistance to it: there was a protest last Saturday in London, and now in Bradford there’s an event planned for Saturday 8th April. Of course, these things aren’t enough, but they’re a start. Interestingly, both events seem to be called by individuals with little connection to the organised left; that doesn’t mean much by itself, but it might show a potential for things to develop in interesting ways. Perhaps. Anyway, if you’re within travelling distance of West Yorkshire and fancy getting involved, it’s meant to be starting at 12 from City Park, Bradford.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
