On Wednesday evening, more than 130 activists took collective action in Wembley to recognise commitments made by Brent and Camden Councils to support fairer alternatives to legal loansharks, as a result of local Movement for Change actions.
This represented the largest Movement for Change action on legal loansharking since the launch of our latest training offer in July 2012. We were proud to be joined by members of the Co-Operative Party (including the new General Secretary, Karin Christiansen) as well as several activists from Unite the Union, many of whom arrived dressed as sharks.
Over the coming months, Movement for Change activists will be taking action in local communities up and down the country. While we’re calling for a cap on the cost of credit and an end to legal loansharking, the actions will vary depending on local strategy and leadership.
