As well as contacts with the anti-workfare group in Berlin, Doorbraak also has links with a Paris group. Boycott Workfare has also made trips to Austria and Oldenburg, Germany and so together we are developing a loose network of groups across Europe against workfare. In both of the talks we gave in the Netherlands there was interest in strengthening these links and discussing co-ordinating European wide actions together. Our short trip helped us to think about and understand workfare beyond the UK; we saw how similarly brutal and devastating welfare cuts and workfare schemes are being imposed across Europe. By learning from each others experiences and sharing ideas and tactics, building networks and solidarity, we can begin to challenge workfare on this scale.
