Erdington supporters of Birmingham Against the Cuts held a successful stall in Erdington High St outside the Coop from 11 am – 1pm on Saturday. Using a megaphone we were able to get over some of the aspects of the massive cuts planned by the Birmingham Council particularly on cuts in the Youth Service, Child services and home help for older people.
We collected over a hundred signatures calling on all councillors to vote against the cuts budget on March 1st. The petition will be presented by a councillor at the budget making meeting on the 1st March. (You can sign the petition online here)
We intend to hold to further stalls to build the TUC march on the 26th March. The first in Sutton shopping centre 12 noon – 2 pm Saturday 12th March and probably Erdington High St (outside the Coop) 12 noon Saturday 19th March (decision to be made later).
If you can help either ring myself or Pete Duffy 0780 940 6973.
