Protests for Fast Food Rights

Issue No. 2480

Fast food Rights campaigners protested across Britain on Tuesday of last week.

They were demanding £10 an hour and union rights for fast food workers.

In Salford members of the Fast Food Rights campaign protested inside a McDonald’s branch and outside the company’s North West headquarters.

Activists in south London leafleted customers outside a McDonald’s in Brixton.

The GMB union also held a number of protests on the same day.

The action was timed to coincide with a US fast food workers’ strike.

Their strike was part of a long running battle for

$15 dollars an hour minimum wage and union rights.

Fast Food Rights campaigners were set to protest in Lincoln this Saturday.
