WorkersWildWest - Workers' Paper for West-London - Issue no.2 - April/May 2015

Dear sisters and brothers,

During the last month we have distributed around 1,700 copies of WorkersWildWest issue no.1 in front of mail sorting offices, warehouses, food factories, job centres and hospitals. We had good conversations and found out new things about the area we live in. Below you can find the content-list of issue no.2. Feel free to comment on the paper and, if you live in London, to get involved!

The full-version you can find here: www.workerswildwest.wordpress.com
