Manchester Leafletting Report

From approximately 1:30 to 3:00pm on 31st January a group of approximately 15 people leafletted customers of Marks and Spencers, Orange and Tesco all in Market Street, Manchester.
We handed out around 1800 leaflets explaining the dispute and why it is relevant to those shops and their customers.
We told the shop managers what we were doing and why. Marks and Spencers management were the most edgy and I have confidence they will report the matter further within the organisation and account.
My personal experience was that those people who stopped and talked were interested and supportive of the dispute. We even had donations from the public outside Marks and Spencers. Even after we finished leafletting I saw a number of green leaflets being clutched as I went back to the car.
