'It Shouldn't Cost to Live' discussion by Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty
CWC member Josie Tothill gave information on the cost of living crisis, including who is profiting from it. Followed by a talk and discussion with Mike Cormack from Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty, thinking through what actions we can take together and ways we can form solidarity. Including information on fighting unjust social welfare sanctions.

We also had food by the incredible CWC member Chantal aka Queen Vital Vegan - themed around healthy affordable food feeding over 25 people for under £12. Then an incredible writing workshop by CWC member Jj, about what is valued as work, which allowed people to write poetry and texts which were part of our open mic! What a day exploring joy and resistance! Thanks to everyone that came, and sang and danced and laughed and discussed what actions we can do to make a difference!
