Support one another by joining the Solidarity Phone Tree

Please join our phone tree and help provide support for people who are having serious problems with authorities, eg the Council, Sheriff officers, benefits office, utility companies etc.

Your commitments would be:

1.  Getting an occasional phone call – almost always daytime or early evening - informing you of a solidarity activity - you are under no obligation to attend if it is not convenient for you.  If you can make it then you go to the location where people are needed – eg a benefit office, a workplace, a Council or other office, or it could be someone's home, where sheriff officers are due to visit.

2. Calling the next number on the phone tree list, to tell them about the solidarity activity.

3. Joining the email list, where you would recieve regular updates about ECAP campaigns and solidarity actions.

When it comes to solidarity we need as many people as possible, ready to support one another.

Contact ECAP to join.
