Chris Skidmores offices visited and shut down
Early on Friday morning activists from Youth Fight For Jobs and Bristol Socialist Party visited Chris Skidmore’s surgery to protest against his new book Britannia Unchanged that attacks working class people as lazy. A police officer patrolled the area and a sign was on the door saying ‘closed due to unforeseen circumstances’. So Skidmore had bottled it after hearing about our plans and closed his surgery, much to the annoyance of his constituents.
Despite Skidmore’s escape we surrounded his office and with chants and the help of a hooter we kicked off the protest, while activists gave interviews to Radio Bristol. After about an hour of ringing Skidmore’s doorbell, activists marched on the shopping area and gave out leaflets hailed with cheers and drivers tooting their horns.
If you are interested in todays action and want to get involved YFJ activists will be opposite the Hippodrome at 12PM tomorrow.
