Creating more local groups

Over the past few months, some local groups have formed in Birmingham, based around postcodes/city areas, groups like Stirchley and Cotteridge Against the Cuts and Handsworth Against the Cuts have been active in building resistance to cuts at a very local level.

We want more of these groups to form in the city, and are particularly interested in anyone around the Northfield and Yardley areas as there are activists there who are wanting to form a group.
We will also be campaigning around the city on nursery closures in the following areas: Aston; Bordesley Green; Ladywood; Highgate & Alum Rock.
There is also a nursery in Castle Vale that is already closed, and nurseries in West Heath and Kings Heath that are going to be campaigned on by Stirchley and Cotteridge Against the Cuts and Kings Heath Against the Cuts respectively.

However, there are cuts taking place all over the city, from nurseries to connexions offices, council offices and civil service workplaces, hospital staff & bed cuts, libraries and many other services that will no longer operate, and we want to see local groups covering every postcode area in Birmingham.
If you can get involved in your area, and want to start a group, then please contact us and we will seek to put you in touch with other activists in your area.
Have a look at our local groups page and see if there is already a group in your area to get involved with.

    Sparkhill & Springfield Community Directory (“Independent Community Directory of Businesses & Public Services”) Have published in its July issue a full page (A5) Ad/Article on Birmingham Against The Cuts with BATC Skyline Logo and a photo of BATC & BTUC banners.
    I suspect other areas have a similar directory. So it may be worth trying to do a city wide trawl for such publications that we could contribute to.
    In solidarity
