£83m of cuts to Bristol council are being prepared by Mayor George Ferguson. These will mean 1000 jobs lost and huge cuts to services including libraries, parks, care services, leisure centres, children's centres, pollution management and sexual and domestic violence projects.
But this can be stopped. Below are details of two important events in the campaign against these cuts...
PUBLIC MEETING – Councillors CAN Fight the Cuts!
Mon 17th Feb, 7.30pm, Council House/City Hall, College Green. Speaker: Keith Morrell
Keith is an anti-cuts councillor in Southampton. He was kicked out of the Labour group for sticking to his promises and refusing to vote for the closure of a swimming pool. His campaign was successful and the pool has been saved. The day after the meeting councillors in Bristol will vote on £83m of cuts to the city. Keith will explain they have a choice and can save jobs and services.
Organised by Bristol Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts
