Whitstable Job Centre protest

Canterbury Greens will be supporting the PCS protest on Friday at the threatened closure of Whitstable Job Centre.

Pat Marsh, Canterbury Green Party: "Whitstable Job Centre is there to provide a key service to people in
need. It has already seen its hours reduced and closure will simply make it harder to access and more likely that people miss essential appointments.

"This appears to be the latest in a long line of attacks by the government on the poor and vulnerable in our society."

Stuart Jeffery, Chair of Kent Green Party: "I have written to the PCS expressing our support for their campaign and to the Job Centre management calling for the Whitstable centre to remain open. We have to ensure that essential services are available and accessible to all who need them."
