Socialist Worker

Public services lobby

Issue No. 2004

A joint union campaign against privatisation and for public services will be carried forward at a rally and lobby of parliament on Tuesday 27 June.

The organisers say, “Since 1997, New Labour has continued the Tories’ drive to privatise our public services.

“Up to £100 billion has so far been committed to PFI, a scheme devised in the early 1990s to transfer large portions of the public sector to private profiteers.”

The rally commences at 12 noon at Methodist Central Hall, 200 metres from the House of Commons.

A day of action will be discussed for later this year.
