RALLY AGAINST CUTS

2 pm, NOVEMBER 13th

CARRS LANE CHURCH, BIRMINGHAM B4 7SX

Join Disabled People Against Cuts ( DPAC) at an anti-cuts rally.

The cuts put forward by the coalition government in the budget and Comprehensive Spending Review will hit disabled people disproportionately hard. A recent DEMOS report says that by 2015 disabled people will lose £9.2 billion in benefits and that these cuts will negatively affect 3.6 million disabled people and carers.

Funding for care and support has already been dramatically slashed in many local authorities including Nottingham,( £72 million) and Norfolk ( £83 million). In Kensington and Chelsea a disabled woman’s overnight care has been removed and she has been given pads instead, although she is not incontinent.

Help us stop this being the world for disabled people in 2015

Message from Right to Work –
West Midlands Right To Work is hosting a “Birmingham against the cuts” rally on 13th of November, 2pm, Carrs Lane Church, Carrs Lane, Birmingham. This rally is supported by UNISON Birmingham local government branch and West Midlands PCS. 

Th…is Con-Den government has unleashed the biggest ever assault on benefits targeting the ill and the disabled.

We are being asked to foot the bill for the £1.4 trillion bail out for the bankers. That means cuts in services and living standards, a massive job cull and us all having to work longer and enjoy less retirement.

The Con-Dems will move to replace all benefits and tax credits paid to those of working age with one ‘universal’ benefit which will pay out less.
Today Osborne says “we’re all in this together”. But as the Channel 4 Dispatches programme revealed that along with two other Cabinet ministers he’s avoiding paying tax.
We have seen Vodaphone being let off of paying £6 billion in tax as public services are being slashed and burned. We are clearly not in it all together!!

The rally on the 13th November will bring together a wide range of speakers from the Labour movement. We can confirm that the FBU is arranging for a striking London firefighter to speak and we are the process of organising a French striker and student to address the rally.

These speakers will be reporting from the sharp end of the international struggle against the cuts along side local speakers from the CWU, UNISON, PCS, NUT, UCU, Labour Party, disability groups, students and more.

Please come along to the rally and help build the resistance and defend our welfare state.
