Lobby of Bristol CIty Council: Stand up against £35m of cuts in Bristol!

Join the lobby tomorrow from 5pm at the Council House
George Ferguson's proposed budget will mean:
  • -330 job cuts, including around 100 compulsory redundancies
  • -Attacks on children's centres
  • -Cuts to community transport
  • -Confirming the closure of care homes and day care centres
  • -32 fewer PCSOs
  • -More council houses lying empty
  • -More services lost to unaccountable, profit-hungry private companies
  • -Worsening services across the board
  • -No new swimming pool and recycling centre that were promised
And to add a final kick in the teeth we're expected to pay 2% more council tax for the privilege!
