Carlisle Socialist Party handed an anti-cuts petition to the city's council executive on 15 January.
When presenting the petition, Grahame Higginson said: "[The signatories] want you to stop following the orders of a government which nobody elected, on an austerity programme which nobody voted for, and which one of the parties now in government said it was opposed to at the general election.
"The people who signed this petition say: 'enough is enough - no more cuts in jobs or services'."
The council's budget meeting is on 4 February
