On Wednesday (23rd March), the ConDem coalition announces it’s budget, which will detail the cuts for the following financial year.
Birmingham Against the Cuts will be holding a press conference at 11am in Victoria Square, with local music legends UB40 and speakers from PCS and other unions. This will be a loud and lively event, so come along and enjoy it.
Then for everyone working, there will be a demonstration from 5pm-6:45pm outside the Government Offices for the West Midlands, St Philips Place. There will be some speakers from local campaigns against cuts as well as some open time for anyone who is around to speak about how the cuts are affecting them.
Alongside this demonstration will be some theatrical direct action, but the details of that will remain under wraps until the evening…
All of this builds to the national TUC demonstration on Saturday – a run around of the table at the planning meeting tonight counted over 60 coaches going from Birmingham – a similar number to the Stop the War march in 2003, which saw over 1 million people take to the streets.
