Why we are marching to Manchester Town Hall

‘Our union Unite will be marching in defiance of the large- scale programme of cuts to jobs,services and our communities and we dont want to be part of that legacy. Cuts affect real people and lives and services when gone are gone for ever.’ Jimmy Thornton, Branch Sec, Manchester City Council Unite Branch

‘What is important is that we want our council to serve us and not the government and we want our councillors to use their imagination, courage and political convictions to find a way to stand up for what they stood for when they were elected by us. The councillors who have already undertaken to reject this budget proposal should be supported by their councillor colleagues and the public and they should not be in the minority,’ Rachel Skelton, Save Levy Baths and Library Campaign.

PCS Samba Band will be ‘Drumming Up Support’ for the fight against the cuts. If you have a drum or an instrument join them on the march.

“We have met the Leader of the Council and members of the executive to make our position on these proposals absolutely clear. We will be voting against the proposals for both of these local facilities.” Levenshulme Labour Councillors, Aftab Ahmed and Nasrin Ali.
