This event will be a joint benefit, with proceeds split equally between two initiatives:
Anti-Raids Network - a migrants right & detainee group, who support the undocumented and the invisible against the witchhunts of the UK Border Agency and Metropolitan Police alike. We are 100% dependent on donations and fundraising to keep our crucial work going!
South London Solidarity Federation - the project to build a truly independent & revolutionary union for all workers, both in and out of employment. We're currently over a year into a huge campaign against the government's brutal Workfare regime, fighting to save Lewisham Hospital from the hatchet man, and plenty more:
It's also part of the Stop G8 Week of Action: https://network23.org/stopg8/week-of-action/
Come down early & show your support!
