West Lancs Against Cuts
Phil Rawsthorne, Socialist Party and West Lancs Against the Cuts
Socialist Party members in West Lancashire have teamed up with others in their local community, in order to fight back against the savage austerity attacks implemented by a ruthless Tory-controlled council.
West Lancs Against the Cuts (WLAC) met for the first time on Wednesday 6 June. Lots of good ideas were put forward about an action plan to combat attacks on services for the sick, disabled and elderly.
Talks were heard on A4e, foundation trusts and the neglect of Skelmersdale by the borough council.
A demo is planned for Wednesday 27 June at 11am outside the local benefits office, targeting both workfare and DWP's treatment of local disabled people.
The next WLAC meeting is planned for Wednesday 4 July.
