Birmingham: Growing anger against cuts
On 19 June Socialist Party activists held a successful stall in the Acocks Green area of Birmingham, which saw the growing anger of working people who are being told to pay the price for a crisis they did not create.
We had strong support for our petition against the 2,000 job losses looming at Birmingham city council and the cuts in services such as nurseries, care homes and mental health support that will result.
We sold 45 copies of The Socialist, raised over £25 for the Socialist Party fighting fund, and there was a lot of interest in our 5 July public meeting against cuts.
