Action Against Austerity presents: Welfare and Social Security

This Saturday, we’re delighted to be joining our friends in Scotland and Ontario, Canada for an online discussion organised by Action Against Austerity.

WinVisible will be sharing news of how we are winning individual benefit cases, and our welfare demands under the pandemic as disabled women/of colour/mothers and family carers, immigrant and UK-born.

Register free here. Email us if support needed.

** Read our conversation with John Clarke and his criticisms of the Basic Income pilot which was run in Ontario.

** Read about Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty‘s campaign to “Stop the Reviews” of disability benefits.

About this event

Our summer programme, Discussions on Organising Resistance in Pandemic Capitalism, is a collection of panels bringing together the voices currently fighting alongside us across the globe.

The first event centres on struggles around Welfare and Social Security. We are excited to be joined by WinVisible, Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty and John Clarke from Canada.

Each group will give a brief introduction of their work, then we will have a roundtable discussion allowing each group to talk more about specific successes and difficulties. There will then be an opportunity to ask questions, and join in the discussion.

July 17th at 18:00 BST.
