Wigan People Against Cuts 

People Against Cuts is a Wigan Borough based community campaign launched at a public rally on 31st July 2010 against the new Con-Dem Government’s attack on the public sector which will massively impact on jobs, services and the lives of ordinary people in the Wigan Borough.

It brings together local trade unionists, community activists and others passionate about protecting public services. It is non-sectarian and unaligned to any political party. It is united in opposing the Government’s proposed cuts and in recognising the need for ordinary people to fight back.

We aim to raise awareness of the true devastation the cuts will have on society and services in our area. 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 around us.

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.
