Second open planning meeting for Lib Dem conference demo

Dear Friend,

This September, the Lib-Dems will hold their annual conference here in Birmingham –  a city being devastated by the cuts of a Con-Dem council and Con-Dem government.

West Midlands Right To Work is working with the West Midlands regional TUC and regional anti-cuts groups to build the biggest and broadest demonstration on the day.  This protest must be inclusive of all of those groups, trade unions and organisations that are opposed to the cuts.

The Right to Work campaign has initiated  a national demonstration to protest against the Lib-Dems when they come to our city.  The demonstration will take place on Sunday 18th September.

The meeting on Thursday 23rd June was attended by RTW activists, members of NUT, PCS, CWU, UNITE, UNISON, campaign groups Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC), Birmingham Against the Cuts (BATC), West Midlands Against the Cuts (WMAC), Black Activists Rising Against Cuts(BARAC), Labour Party and Green Party activists.

Lee Barron, Chair of West Mids.TUC and Regional Sec. CWU addressed the meeting.  Lee spoke about how important it was that RTW and the regional TUC were working to build a unified and inclusive demonstration on the 18th September.

West Midlands Right To Work has organised a second open planning meeting to help build the demonstration on the 18th September . Any organisation or individual that wishes to back the demonstration and have a full part in planning the day can send a representative or attend the meeting.

Come to the open planning meeting, Tuesday 12th July, 7pm,  UNISON office, 19th Floor,McClaren House,Priory Queensway.

In Solidarity,
Matt Raine
