Northampton Alliance to Defend Public Services
NADS developed after Northampton TUC public sector group ran a well attended public meeting before Xmas and invited audience members to attend an open meeting to take campaigning against the cuts forward.
It now meets regularly, and is about to hold a public meeting with NTUC on the 20th Jan with Mark Serwotka PCS and Tracey Morel Autism Concern as key speakers.
It works in conjunction with NTUC and hopes to get more members of the local community involved. Future events involve more stalls, leaflets, a march and rally and demos at County Council and Borough Council meetings to finalise cuts budgets.
