Three working-class founders of fans’ initiative that has spread across the country want all working-class communities and all football fans to see this – and act
Fans Supporting Foodbanks (FSF) is a brilliant initiative, started by three working class blokes from Liverpool, to collect food for foodbanks – because many in their area were regularly running out of food for vulnerable families.
That’s how massive the impact of Tory policies, in particular the vile and punitive Universal Credit, has been on communities across this country.
But at the Liverpool-Everton derby match at Anfield tonight, FSF has a simple message for fans of both teams and voters across the nation:
“Shut Us Down”.
The three FSF founders talked today to the SKWAWKBOX about their initiative and the need they encounter among ordinary people – and about why they want to be made redundant next week.
And they had a particular message for the working-class communities that have been targeted by the Tories in this election in spite of the hammering those communities have received under Tory policies:
Remember who your real enemy is:
The message is absolutely simple: the Tories and their BP offshoot are not on our side. They never have been and they never will be.
FSF is an example of working-class solidarity. A show of that solidarity at the ballot box next week will change the course of this country – and restore it as a society that doesn’t need foodbanks because everyone will be properly fed and cared for under a Labour government.
The lads will be taking that message to other towns and clubs between now and election day.
Vote Labour for yourself, for your community and for your country.
