Saturday 4 June—11– 4.30pm
The Black-E, Great George Street, Liverpool L1 5EW
On 26 March the workers and communities of Britain spoke with one voice. The half a million people who marched – and included everyone from trade unionists, through students and pensioners to local community campaigners – want to fight the cuts and stop them, not just protest against them. They want action, not words. As more and more workers face cuts in jobs and services, as more and more service users find their services slashed, as more and more families face the prospect of one or other of their members cast on to the scrap heap of unemployment resistance will grow.
To keep up the momentum against the cuts, to maintain the unity of all workers, across public and private sectors, across all communities regardless of race, nationality or religion, across the age gap and across the employed and unemployed – Liverpool Trades Union Council has called a People’s Assembly Against the Cuts.
We invite your union branch, campaign or community organisation to support this event on 4 June. It will be a forum for discussion and planning, it will be a working meeting shaped by you, and it will be an organising centre for action. It will represent the real voice of the people of our city – a voice that says loud and clear to the Con Dem Government and to the Labour City Council: stop all cuts to our jobs and services.
If you want to support this event please write to us. If you want to book a stall for your campaign contact us. There will be room for several and we will book them in on a first come, first serve basis.
But above all—come to the event and help take the campaign against the cuts forward.
