JHP Employability – workfare pimps

Another bunch of sleazy slave-mongers has been brought to our attention:

Press Release: JHP Group announced as a preferred bidder for the Department for Work and Pensions’ Work Programme pdf

From their website:

 

JHP Employability Call: 0800 6800 321:

Did you know we could offer you free, temporary staff for four weeks? 

“The Department for Work and Pensions has created a new work programme designed to give those who are unemployed the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences by completing a work placement which will benefit their local community.”

 – It beats us how the community benefits from losing 4 weeks full time paid employment when there already aren’t enough jobs to go round. –

“What’s great about the programme…”

 – We’re all ears –

”We are giving our clients new opportunities and a fresh start. A 4-week placement gives them the chance to experiene” (sic) 

– won’t teach ‘em to spell then – “a new sector or job and”

– wait for it… “give back to the community”.

 – There you go, give back to the community that denied you a living by lining JHP’s pockets at your own expense! Who exactly do these bastards think they are? –

“…The programme lasts 4 weeks with each client completing a 30 hour working week…”

“Get involved…

If you’d like to support this programme”

– If, like us, you want to put a stop to the exploitation of your Fellow Workers: –

“and provide our clients with this unique opportunity,”  – to work 30 hours a week for fuck all –

“please get in touch with our regional team on

How many friends do the Golden Dawn have in England?

We can confidently report that the answer is twelve.

All over the world today, antifascists, militant and liberal, answered the call out from Greek Antifa for an international day of action against the take over of their society by the Golden Dawn, an old-fashioned genetic-Nazi organisation.

Despite the crappy weather, a static demo called by the Greece Solidarity Campaign outside the Greek embassy was attended by a healthy 200 plus socialists and anarchists with representatives of the Greek and other communities. News that a counter-protest was planned by a group variously calling itself ‘British Friends of the Golden Dawn’ or ‘England’s Golden Dawn’ attracted about 60 militant anti-fascists.

By midday there was no sign of the fash at their assembly point but eventually a dozen weirdos, complete with Nazi tattoos, a Greek flag, and a modified Union Jack, were escorted by the plod into a tiny little pen and back to the tube again, making themselves look utterly ridiculous in the process. This is the absolute lunatic fringe of Britain’s far right, check out their Facebook page if you don’t believe us, proper barking, biting yer ankles mad, one wore a Union Jack gimp mask.

As people peeled away from the demo to tell them off, the slaphead with the sunglasses conducted the chorus of disapproval with his pointy finger, the chubby ginger lad gurned a lot, the one woman looked near to collapse. British fascists carrying a Greek flag, easily outnumbered by real Greeks! You couldn’t make it up.

AFNgreekEventually the UAF ‘smash fascism’ contingent noticed that some actual fascists had arrived and interrupted the speeches briefly to point this out, then carried on as if nothing had happened. A Greek squatter solidarity group unfurled a banner and the police started to misbehave.

villaLast Wednesday to Thursday, Sahtzat Loukam, a Pakistani migrant, 27 years, was killed by two Greek people. It appears that these two people belong to the Golden Dawn. This is the first time the Greek police are investigating the killing of a migrant by someone who belongs to the Golden Dawn. In the last two years, 800 Pakistanis have suffered racist attacks in Greece; five of them were killed.
