Brixton, London. Sat 13 Dec 2014
Protesters gather outside the door of Morleys
Unison had provided a Santa costume and placards. One protester had a t-shirt calling for the minimum wage to be raised to £10 now
The protest began on the busy street opposite Brixton Underground station
Santa walks into Morley Stores with a placard 'Lambeth Needs a Pay Rise'
followed by NSSN chair Rob Williams with union membership forms and a woman with a megaphone
They walked along the ground floor of the store handing out flyers and forms
The protesters then went to Subway, just off the main road and went in there
From Morleys they went a few shops up the road
and into Poundland
They were soon asked to leave
but handed out forms as they did so
and continued the protest outside before moving on to other shops that don't pay staff a living wage.
