By requiring people to work without pay, the government's workfare schemes are pushing more and more people into poverty and unemployment, says Ekklesia associate Symon Hill. Christian organisations need to campaign against workfare, not participate in it, he argues.
A year after the beginning of Occupy London Stock Exchange, Symon Hill gives a personal reflection on the response from St Paul's Cathedral. Symon was dragged from the cathedral steps as he prayed during the eviction of the camp. He marked the anniversary by joining an act of witness and protest at St Paul's by Christianity Uncut.
