RIC Edinburgh members stood in solidarity with a delegation of young women addressing the City of Edinburgh Council, campaigning to stop families being evicted because of the benefit cap. They were part of a broad coalition of organisations, including the Edinburgh Campaign Against Poverty, We Are All Daniel Blake, the Scottish Unemployed Workers Network and Dundee Against Austerity. Messages of support were also sent form Castlemilk Against Austerity and film-maker, Paul Laverty.
