Carrots, sticks and stones

Carrots, sticks and stones
November 11, 2010 Calverts_123

Here are a few pictures from yesterday's London education demonstration, featuring members of the Carrotworkers Collective.

The Carrots are a group of workers, students and graduates in creative and cultural industries, organising against the increasingly compulsory character of unpaid work throughout the economy. For yesterday's demo, they made a 12 foot papier mache carrot, and took it to the Conservative Party's offices at 30 Millbank, with the intention of symbolically 'giving the carrot back'. Unfortunately the carrot was arrested (and presumably rendered for interrogation) by a Metropolitan Police CO11 public order unit.

Calverts is collaborating with the Carrotworkers on co-operative ideas, methods and structures for furthering their aims around democratic practice, creative commons, shared space and decent employment. CarrotPixOptimised 004
