We’ll be assembling in Kennington Park at 10.30am so bring a pack lunch and all the banners, instruments and home made placards you can carry. The feeder march has been called by Lambeth SOS, Southwark SOS & Lewisham Anti-Cuts Alliance.
The ConDems want working class communities to bear the brunt of the economic crisis. And they are using the crisis as a cover for their ideological plans to break up the welfare state. These ‘austerity’ cuts are totally unnecessary. Why should bankers continue raking in fat bonuses while our jobs, services and communities are destroyed? In Lambeth alone the Council are making 37million in cuts this year but across the country people are beginning to fight back…
- GPs, Unions and patient groups are uniting to keep the NHS public and to keep the market and the private profiteers out.
- Students and staff have taken to the streets in their tens of thousands to stop funding cuts in education at all levels.
- In Lambeth, parents and play workers are uniting against the closure of adventure playgrounds and youth clubs. Thousands have signed the petition to stop all the park rangers being sacked. Workers in the libraries and in Lambeth Living are balloting for strike action in response to Council plans to close 4 libraries, 2 mobile libraries and to cut frontline services on housing estates.
Lambeth SOS is an umbrella organisation of local trade unionists, community organisations, pensioners and students working to support & build every struggle against cuts, to save services, to stop job losses and to bring down the ConDems!
