DPAC Trash The Tories in Maidenhead

Maidenhead, Berks. Sat 3 Jun 2017



Paula Peters holds up a 'Missing' poster for Theresa May and Philip Hammond outside Maidenhead station 

 and a straw effigy of May next to a 'Cuts Kill# banner with a cleaver

 

 'Please Sir, I want some more' and a lunchbox - May is promising to replace free school lunches with a 7p breakfast

 Roger Lewis of DPAC speaks, followed by other disabled protesters

 

 

 'Tories are flushing our lives down the...'

 'No More Deaths from Benefit Cuts' 

 The protesters begin to move

 

 

 

 Paula Peters holds the 'Cuts Kill' placard and behind her is a large banner with details of around a hundred who have died

 due to sanctions and benefit cuts

 There are a few shoppers on the streets but Maidenhead is pretty empty on a Saturday afternoon

 Police take the protesters to the High St, where there are a few more going in and out of a shopping centre

 

 

 And there are speeches

 

 

 People hand out leaflets and talk to some of the shoppers

 

 

 After around an hour the protesters begin to make their way back to the station

 

but I'm fairly sure it isn't over yet
