Hull Against the Cuts
Hull against the cuts is a campaigning group of trade unionists, students and community groups based in Hull that are organising resistance to the government cuts. Hull is likely to be hit the hardest by the cuts.
We say ordinary people should not have to pay for a crisis not of their making.
The number of millionaires in Britain is rising but this government wants the poor to pay by attacking public services like health, education and social services.
After using our taxes to pay for the banking crisis, city bankers are back on the bonus trail again. It has been estimated that £7billion in bonuses will be handed out to the top bankers. We say this is a scandal!
We will not stand aside and let this or any government dismantle the welfare state, the hospitals, the education system and the vital services that they provide for the poor, the sick the elderly, the young and the vulnerable.
We have already organised several demonstrations against the cuts. We have launched a petition calling on Hull local authority to fight the cuts which we intend to present to the city council on October 21st.
We meet fortnightly at the Unison offices, 39 Alfred Gelder Street.
