Protestors and politicians gathered in Bristol on Saturday to call on the government to do more to help people in Syria. Problems in the country have been escalating since March last year. More than 13 thousand people have died.
Campaigners say they have to keep pressure on the international community to help stop the violence. Tanya Mercer has this report:
Protesters have taken to the streets of Bristol as part of a national demonstration against the Government's workfare scheme. It's designed to give unemployed people the skills and experience they need to get a job but some say the unpaid scheme amounts to slave labour.
The Work Programme gives providers the flexibility to offer tailored support to suit individuals. We know that work experience has given thousands of young and long-term unemployed people a break and we are delighted that despite the persistent and viscous campaign, companies want to get involved.".
