Wood Green Universal Credit protest

Wood Green, London. Sat 18 May 2019



 

 In front of the library at Wood Green were two groups of protesters, a Turkish group

 and the Revolutionary Communist Group, protesting against Universal Credit

 They had taped posters to the pavement and were speaking and handing out leaflets

 

 Some paused to read the posters or take a leaflet

 or listened to the speeches

 about the effects of Universal Credit, forcing people in to debt. Many get behind with rent and there has been a

 large surge in evictions and families and individual made homeless because of Universal Credit. many more

 are forced to rely on food banks because it takes at least 5 weeks for any money to come through when you are put on UC.

 

 As the group began to pack up they posed for pictures, though a few had already left

 

 

 

 'I want my right to reside' Çagri Güler, an asylum seeker from Turkey has been sitting in for over a month

 for all people who are left undocumented and without rights because of the Home Office.
