Paul Laverty in Dundee – a video

Screenwriter, Paul Laverty, at the Scottish Unemployed Workers’ Network (SUWN) showing of I, Daniel Blake in Dundee: Paul describes the research he did for the film – with people affected by the attack on ‘welfare’, with activists (including the SUWN), and with jobcentre workers – and how this convinced him that the problems are systemic and deliberate. He calls on Scottish civil society to come together in defence of our most vulnerable,  first to put pressure on the Scottish Government to make the most of devolved benefits, and then to make the punitive core of the system that remains controlled by Westminster unworkable. Sarah and Tony from the SUWN describe our method of work, which combines grassroots mutual support with wider campaigning.
