Gap protest

Issue No. 1738

Two hundred of us protested outside the new Gap store in Sheffield last Saturday. A group of under 16 year olds went into Gap to demand jobs, as Gap employs children their age in other countries. We blockaded the road through the town centre before the police dragged us off the road.

Some of us marched through the town centre, chanting, 'What's outrageous? Sweatshop wages. What's disgusting? Union busting.' It was an exciting and effective protest, and a strong start to the national protests set to take place this Thursday, 8 March and on Saturday, 10 March.
