The store supervisor came out and told us we would have to move as it was private property - we refused as it is a public area. The centre security staff turned up and told us the same and asked for our names we refused on both points, so they called the police. The manager of the store then came out and said they were not using workfare then changed her story to they did use it but it gave people jobs?????
It became obvious that the police were not coming, so the head security card resorted to threatening us with things like we would be banned from the shopping centre and we would be sent the bill for cleaning up any dropped leaflets. This attracted quite a crowd who were often vocal in their support of our actions. The police never did show up. We continue to take direct action against Poundland and others till they stop using Workfare.
