Protest at local government cuts outside Hackney Town Hall
Activists will be protesting at Hackney Town Hall this week against cuts to jobs and services.
Community campaigners and trade unionists are planning to demonstrate outside a full meeting of Hackney Council on Wednesday between 6pm and 8pm.
They will be demanding that bosses at the town hall resist the cuts that were announced in the government’s Comprehensive Spending Review on Wednesday (October 20).
Hackney Council announced on Thursday it was planning to slash its budget by a whopping �26 million for next year and a total of �70 million over four years.
“No one should underestimate the impact of the cuts,” said Ibrahim Avcil, joint secretary of the Hackney Alliance to Defend Public Services campaign group.
