Protest today!

Lobby the council!
No to cuts and privatisation!
3.30pm today!
Hove Town Hall
Norton Road, Hove

This afternoon councillors will be threatening to cut vital services in our city at the full council meeting at Hove Town Hall.

Connexions services are under threat from massive cuts and job losses, yet this is a crucial provider of help and assistance to the thousands of children in the city who suffer from poverty and unemployment who need support.

Keep Portslade Community College Academy Free campaign group will also be present to protest against council plans to hand over control and managment of a local school to an unqualified, unaccountable businessman.

Cuts to many of our city's public services are also being discussed and it is essential that as many of us get along to the protest this afternoon to add support to workers and campaigners resisting these unjustified attacks.
