Equality Act: an effective tool to challenge local government on planned cuts

February 4, 2011

At the Hackney Unites anti-cuts meeting last week, London Anti Racist Alliance chairperson, Arpita Dutt, spoke about activists using the Equality Duty as a tool for challenging public bodies planning to implement cuts in services, and the ARA’s community drama group, arts4REAL, performed an anti-cuts drama piece, “Hard Times  –  We’ve Got To Stop This!”, which had been premiered in December at a West London ARA anti-cuts event in Acton supported by Ealing TUC and local community organisations.
