'Stop the cuts' from Edinburgh to Plymouth

Issue No. 2360


In London, 55 PCS and Prospect members who work for the HSE in London joined a lunchtime protest against Osborne’s latest cuts.

lIn Liverpool the PCS regional banner went on the teachers’ strike rally.

We also had speakers from the NUT executive speak at our protest. It was a really good turnout with hundreds showing up, but obviously it’s disappointing we’re not striking.

In Edinburgh more than 70 PCS members and supporters turned out to oppose austerity at the Scottish parliament.

Workers from Unison, anti bedroom tax campaigners and disability rights activists came to show solidarity along with various Scottish National Party and Labour MSPs.

In Nottingham around 50 people joined a protest outside a HMRC office. 

It was well attended and looked striking with all our red “stop the cuts” placards, but a strike today would have had far more participants.
