Preston Against Cuts 

Location: UK » North West » PR

Preston Against Cuts (PAC) is a community based campaign launched at a public rally held by Preston and South Ribble Trades Union Council against the Government’s vicious attack on the public sector. This attack has a devastating impact on jobs and services in the public, private and voluntary sector and effects the lives of thousands of people living in Preston.

PAC brings together local trade unionists, community activists and others committed to protecting public services. It is non-sectarian and unaligned to any political party. It is united in opposing the Government’s proposed cuts and gives the people of Preston the power to fight back and defend services so many lives depend on.

We aim to raise awareness of the true devastation the cuts will have on our community in Preston. The impact will be worse than in the 1980s and will be closer to the great depression of the 1930s as the welfare state is dismantled forever around us. The rich will get richer why the poor get poorer but there is a real alternative. £120 billion the money already owed in tax from companies such as Vodapone should be collected. This would stop the loss of vital public services and prevent thousands of job losses.

We want to involve all local people in fighting the cuts - only by building a mass movement against them - will we be able to prevent them going ahead.
