CALL GOES OUT TO COMMUNITY - DEFEND OUR SERVICES!
12TH FEBRUARY - DAY OF ACTION!
Campaigners against Greenwich Councils cuts programme have set the 12th February as the date for a march through Woolwich to protest against what they say are the most devestating attack on our communities for decades.
Paul Callanan from Greenwich Save Our Services, one of the organisers of the march stated:
"Now is the time to send a loud message to this Council. We will not accept these cuts. We call on the Council to get up off its knees, stop apologising and instead join with us, the people, the communities, the workers, students and the elderly and tell this ConDem government that we will not pay for this crisis, a crisis caused by bankers and financiers, a crisis of a system where profit comes before people. The tragedy is that these cuts are not neccessay. The Council has £133 million in reserves, The Council should instead set a budget based on the needs of the community, dip into the reserves and if neccessay borrow while at the same time leading a campaign amongst workers and service users, students and pensioners in Greenwich, a campaign to win resources for the borough. Why should we lose jobs and services while the bankers and the rich continue to live it up at our expennse?.
If you want to defend services, jobs and pay, if you want to fight closures and privatisation, if you want future generations to have a future, join the demonstration"
