West Yorkshire SWAN: Leeds Budget Day Protest Against Tory Cuts – 5th December

On budget day Tory Chancellor George Osborne will announce yet more cuts. Join the protest against this destruction of our welfare state. The Tories are making us pay for the trillion-pound bank bailout. The NHS and education are being ripped apart by cuts and privatisation. The rich get richer while millions suffer from falling wages, pension cuts, or unemployment, especially young people. What’s worse, only 20 percent of the cuts have come through, with David Cameron predicting a decade of savage austerity – paid for by us! Millions have demonstrated and gone on strike in 2012, now let’s unite to build mass action and a general strike in 2013.

Get involved in Leeds Against the Cuts – next meeting is 6pm on Thurs 6th December at the TUC Centre, 88 North Street (press the conference room buzzer)
