Stirchley and Cotteridge Against the Cuts will hold a public meeting on Wednesday 15th June 7.30pm at Stirchley Community Church, Pershore Road (opposite the old baths on Bournville Lane).
Why the cuts aren’t necessary
How we can defend services
James Anthony (staff nurse and chair of QE hospital UNISON branch)
Linda Burnip (Disabled People against the Cuts)
Charlie Friel (Connexions steward)
Derelict Stirchley Baths
Is this the future for our public services?
• The Cotteridge Day Centre for the elderly has been granted a temporary reprieve, but its future is not guaranteed.
• The neighbourhood office service is being run down. What future for the Cotteridge office?
• Big cuts at the Lindsworth School
• Job cuts to the Fire service
• Merrishaw and Rea Meadow day nurseries threatened.
• Huge cuts to the Connexions service for young people.
• Social care for the elderly slashed.
We could go on, but as the half million strong TUC demonstration on March 26th stated; there is an alternative to this slash and burn attack on our vital public services.
Many public sector workers will be striking on June 30th in defence of a decent pension. Come along to our meeting
and have your say on what we can do to protect our area.
There are plenty of other events coming up in Birmingham before this meeting, take a look at our upcoming events page and see which you can come to to help fight the cuts.
