Roy Sandison from Rugby Green Party reports on the meeting;
An excellent and successful meeting took place on Wednesday 22nd Sept, at the Three Horse Shoes Hotel which agreed to set up ‘RUGBY AGAINST THE CUTS.’
The meeting attended by local trade union leaders, community activists and also local representatives from Rugby Green Party and Rugby Red Green Alliance resolved to build a community and workers campaign in Rugby against the planned savage cuts of the CON DEM Government.
RUGBY AGAINST THE CUTS agreed to support the protest meeting (below) organised by Coventry Against The Cuts on the 28th September and also agreed to affiliate to the national Coalition of Resistancehttp://www.coalitionofresistance.org.uk/ originally promoted by Tony Benn, Caroline Lucas and many other well known people – which is committed to supporting local people in building community anti cuts campaigns in every part of the UK.
RUGBY AGAINST THE CUTS welcomes all local people to become involved in the campaign - either through their trade unions, community groups or as individuals - everyone has something to offer the campaign and all ideas are welcome!
A website is currently being set up and contacts for the campaign will be available on the site.
The next meeting of RUGBY AGAINST THE CUTS is Thursday 7th October, Three Horse Shoes Hotel, Sheep Street, Rugby at 7.30pm. All are welcome!
