Leeds solidarity picket
On Roundhay Road
A young activist giving out leaflets
We were moved to the main road outside quite quickly. We thought it would be more difficult to make contact with people on the road but were surprised when almost every car stopped for information.
Tesco customers were very supportive, saying things like, 'Thanks for doing this, I hate Tescos!' and 'I must find somewhere else to shop.' One shopper joined the picket.
Some Tesco staff waved their support from the store and Tesco delivery drivers took information on their way out. When Tesco called the police they took a leaflet and left us to get on with it.
We were very encouraged by the support of Tesco customers and workers. I hope the workers in Dublin are too.
