About Birmingham Against The Cuts

Birmingham Against The Cuts is a group formed by Trade Unions, Service Groups, User Groups and Campaign Groups in Birmingham to oppose the cuts being made by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalitions both nationally and locally.

If you would like to get more involved with anti-cuts action in Birmingham, come along to one of our open meetings, or contact us by facebook message or e-mail to be put in contact with a group working in your area or employment/benefit sector
