Public Meeting

On Valentines Night “SOS Redbridge”, the broad coalition against the cuts, will hold a public meeting to tell the human story behind the headlines, with a diverse platform of speakers on the arts, health, education, the community and trade unions affected

Monday 14 February 2011, 7-9pm, The Lambourne Room, Ilford Town Hall, IG1 1RS

Speakers:

  • Cllr Barbara White (Musicians Union NEC)
  • Sandra Vincent (GMB)
  • Gemma Bloomfield (UNISON)
  • Shushila Patel (Health Campaigner)
  • Bronwen Handyside (UNITE Regional Committee, KONP)
  • Cllr Bob Littlewood (Leader, Redbridge Labour Group)
  • John Coombes (Redbridge Pensioners’ Forum)
  • Gerry Gable (Redbridge & Epping Forest Together)
  • Chair: Bob Archer, (NUT)

Come along to:

  • Hear what is happening
  • Show your support for the various campaigns
  • Share ideas about defending local services
  • Find out more about the huge TUC-led march later in the spring on 26 March and join the delegation attending from SOS Redbridge

More and more people of all political persuasions say there has to be a fairer and more united way back to future national profitability. This is your opportunity to add your voice to the growing wave of opposition.

As a double-dip recession looms larger than we would all hope, more and more mainstream commentators now question the vast sweep of Coalition spending cuts, which locally extend well beyond cutting universally-loathed “red tape” to threaten valued frontline services, like street cleaning, lollipop men and women and our highly-rated Music School and Drama Centre. Even popular Goodmayes Library is under threat.

PS There are some seriously excellent South Indian restaurants in Ilford for your post-meeting Valentine’s meal.
