Workfare and the anarchists

After the millionaire Tory politician and Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith claimed on Radio Four that “out of touch anarchists” were behind the campaign against the coalition’s hated compulsory workfare scheme, we take a quick look at which anarchist groups have so far publicly supported the initiative and will be involved in the massive nationwide day of actions against workfare this Saturday 3rd March.


The Day of Action was called by Boycott Workfare a UK-wide campaign to end forced unpaid work for people who receive welfare. It is a grassroots network formed in 2010 by people with experience of workfare and those concerned about its impact, which seeks to expose and take action against companies and organisations profiting from workfare.
