Thursday 25 November, 1pm
Stanley Road Jobcentre Plus, Bootle
Bring flags and banners
On Thursday 25 November, Chancellor George Osborne is expected to announce more cuts that will hurt working class people and communities. His Spending Review announcements will be met with protests nationwide.
The Tories still plan to cut billions from the welfare bill, privatise our services and drive millions into poverty. Through cuts to tax credits, the Tories plan to take an average of £1,300 a year away from 3 million working families, pushing 200,000 children into poverty. We have to keep the pressure up and more people need to hear from those affected by the cuts. These are working people’s lives that this government is choosing to make worse.
In Bootle, we are also facing the decimation of the local economy with the removal of 3,000 local jobs as part of HMRC’s restructuring. Not only will this potentially put workers at risk of redundancy, it will force many businesses to close and drive people deeper into poverty, destroying the local community.
Join us at the protest outside the JobCentre on Stanley Road to say that enough is enough! Bring flags, banners, anger and a determination to fight!
