Stalls were held today in the city centre and Kings Heath campaigning about the upcoming council cuts which will mean the loss of over 7,000 jobs over the next 3 years, and the reduction or closure of many services, such as CAB and adult care services.
There was a lot of interest at both locations, with hundreds of people signing the petition, and saying they will attend the events coming up to demonstrate against council cuts.
On 17th Feb there will be a public meeting 19:30pm and the council house.
On 26th Feb, there will be a demonstration, march and rally, assembling at 12 noon at Birmingham Cathedral.
On 1st Mar, there will be a demonstration outside the council house from 2pm, as the council meet to set budgets for the following year.
There are also other events happening around Birmingham in the next few weeks.
The next planning meetings for Birmingham Against the Cuts are on Monday 14th and Tuesday 22nd Feb. These will be focused on the meeting and demonstrations coming up. Everyone is welcome to attend.
