Join Unite Community Essex activists and others in Colchester singing carols to alert people to the Universal Credit Christmas Crisis.
The Colchester group will start singing at about 4pm.
Can you get along to show your support and maybe hand out a few leaflets?
This Christmas will be cancelled for thousands of families claiming the new benefit Universal Credit. Despite knowing Universal Credit causes serious problems for claimants, the government is pressing ahead and rolling it out to thousands of people who will have to wait weeks to receive any money.
Claimants are descending into debt, relying on food banks, getting into rent arrears and in many cases getting evicted from their homes because of in- built problems with Universal Credit.
Take action NOW against Universal Credit
On Saturday 2 December 2017 Unite Community will be staging a national day of action against Universal Credit to send a message to the government that they must STOP & FIX Universal Credit before rolling it out and further or thousands of families face a cold a hungry Christmas and the threat of losing their homes.
