2016 – a year with the SUWN

Hogmanay, the beach and firelight

Comrades, sparklers, soup and beer

First new blog in brand new website

Starting off the brand new year

January

IMG_1375

Make us work but pay no wages –

local  centre, big rich store –

Name and shame on public pages

Activists outside the door

February

Range 1

Range boss boasts of making profit

Work for nothing and he may

Give a job – we say ‘come off it!

Fair day’s work for fair day’s pay!’

March

IMG_1672

Few days early, march for May Day

Folk in jobs and unemployed

‘Spite the differences on payday

All exploited, all annoyed.

April

At the Range to protest workfare

Joined by Dundee TUC

Outside centre where the day care’s

Done by unemployed for free

May

advocacy-is-not-a-crime

Tried to help an ESA-test case

Staff ganged up and said ‘get out!’

Judge decreed ‘they have the best case’

Status gives no room for doubt

June

boycott-workfare-logo

Down to Manchester to meet with

Others fighting Thatcher’s curse

Folk to fight beside and greet with

Scotland’s bad, but England’s worse!

July

Maximus hanging figures

Triage still a sanctions factory

No note of meeting – ‘no excuse!’

Maximus not satisfactory –

Disability abuse!

August [Triage are a Work Programme provider subcontracted to the DWP, Maximus administers the Work Capability Assessments]

Two years on and we’re still fighting

To escape from UK rot

Plus petitioning in writing:

‘Make the best of what we’ve got’

September

Triage worst in all the nation

For its callous attitude

We decide an occupation

Demonstrates our gratitude

October

i-daniel-blake

People ’cross the land are crying

For the fate of Daniel Blake

Tory’s protest, ‘it’s all lying,

He’s not real’ – He’s no fake!

November

suwn-cover-drawing-small

If you’ve not had in your stocking

Our new book on why and how

British ‘welfare’ state’s so shocking

Not too late to order now!

December
