"Second battle of Hastings" - 350 marched against cuts on Saturday

An estimated 350 people marched against the cuts in Hastings on Saturday 16 April - nearly twice the size of the previous gathering. The march, called by Hastings against Cuts and Hastings and District Trades Council, went from Hastings Pier to a town centre rally.

When addressing the rally, Sam Buckley of Hastings Trades Council said the threat to local jobs and services would devastate the town if it wasn't stopped but that this was 'the second battle of Hastings - and this time we're going to win!' He warned that more than half of the town's population depends on the public sector.

Andy Reid from the national executive of the PCS union and others urged the marchers to support strikes against cuts and build for coordinated action.

The PCS union is currently balloting for action and Hastings Against Cuts and the Trades Council are pledged to organise a town centre rally in their support on the day action takes place.
