Fantastic Barbican Protest

What a fantastic protest at the Barbican Centre last night calling for a real living wage, proper sick pay, and an end to Workfare. Was great to fight alongside the great Boycott Workfare and dozens of other amazing activists and trade unionists. A few of us even managed to sneak in past security and address a packed out hall of over 200 people waiting to go and see Hamlet, all of whom very clearly supported both our demands and our tactics. Shame on the Barbican Centre. We’ll be back and we will win!
