The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) anti-cuts campaign is to march to lobby Labour councillors on Saturday 5 March at Labour's local government conference and present a petition demanding that they refuse to vote for and implement the Con-Dem coalition's cuts.

The NSSN anti-cuts campaign has been launched to unite workers threatened with redundancy with communities suffering cuts to services and young people facing sky high tuition fees, cuts to EMA and 25% unemployment rates.

It is also supporting Cardiff Against the Cuts protests at the Tory and Liberal Democrat conferences taking place in Cardiff on Saturday 5 March.

The NSSN is asking everyone to sign the online petition at www.stopcuts.net/sign.htm

The NSSN is helping to build for a massive turnout at the TUC's demonstration on Saturday 26 March against the government but it is adamant that Labour councils mustn't pass on the cuts.

NSSN anti-cuts convenor Rob Williams said: "Working class people in Manchester, for example, didn't vote for Labour councillors to sack 2,000 council workers.

"We are marching to tell them that they do have a choice - they should stand with their workforces and communities against this government of millionaires, not do their dirty work."
