Barnsley saw the launch of its Coalition Against Sanctions tonight at a packed meeting hosted by the Bedroom Tax Campaign.

The room was buzzing after fantastic speakers from Richard Vivian of Unite Community, Tracey from the Bedroom Tax Campaign and Brian from the Trades Council, who noted that lots of organisations were present. From welfare rights teams to food banks, alongside trade unionists, including many from Unite Community.

It was decided to call for the largest action possible on March the 19th, when Unite are planning 100 simultaneous demonstrations right across the UK. Watch this space! Onwards and upwards!
