National day of action to scrap the voucher scheme

Issue No. 1706

Cash not vouchers! Scrap the scheme!

  • Join the protests next weekend outside supermarkets in every city.
  • Use the national petition with shoppers to explain to them why you are protesting-send this off to Jack Straw.
  • Get local shopkeepers and managers of supermarkets that are taking the vouchers to sign the open letter to their directors demanding an end to the voucher system.
  • Set up a collection box outside the supermarkets. Ask shoppers to go in and buy "luxury items" such as toys, alcohol and cigarettes (all of which asylum seekers cannot buy with vouchers).
  • For details of your town's protest phone 0958 478 628.
