Funeral for council services: PROTEST Town Hall, 6.30pm, Thursday 6 March
On Thursday Waltham Forest Council is holding its budget setting meeting. This will be yet another cuts budget, including attacks on local jobs and services and privatisations. They’re killing services, so we’ll be holding a ‘funeral for council services’ outside. TUSC is appealing for all local people and campaigns to join us on the night. We’ll be highlighting the cuts, asking councillors to vote against and pledging to stand against them in May if they fail, as all evidence until now suggests they will.
Where we were last week
We protested against Alistair Campbell speaking at an event in the borough on Thursday (see article from local press here).
We held a Rally for Rent Control at Whipps Cross on Monday.
And on Saturday some of our activists joined supporters in Newham on a stunt outside the Labour Party special conference about the need for a political voice for the trade unions (see article from local press here).
