Demonstrate Against Public Service Cuts in Haringey

Unfair, unacceptable, unnecessary cuts

The people of Haringey are suffering major cuts to all our public services.
The NHS is being privatised. Tottenham has the highest unemployment in
London but further education jobs and courses are being slashed. Welfare and
housing benefits face massive cuts. There have been £41m cuts this year
alone from Haringey’s libraries, schools, youth centres, public service
jobs, elderly facilities, parks & voluntary projects.

This will hit the most vulnerable the hardest – those on low incomes, single
parents, migrant communities, women, elderly & disabled people. And all
workers face attacks on pay and conditions because of rising inflation and a
wage freeze.

This is a wealthy country, but the Government has chosen to take away
££billions of public funds from our vital public services whilst propping up
greedy and irresponsible banks with public money. It also sanctions massive
corporate tax evasion and obscene bonuses. We don't have to accept this!

Opposition is growing everywhere!

In Haringey, thousands have joined in a wide range of local protests,
rallies, public meetings and petitioning over the last year, and on March 26th
over half a million people took part in the national anti-cuts demonstration. Now many public sector Unions are planning coordinated strike action on June 30th. The Government has been shaken on a number of fronts. Together we can force them to reverse their cuts programme. Join in with us!

Haringey united against the cuts – join the march!
