SSOS needs help with web/publicity
Southwark Save Our Services is growing fast to keep up with the massive attacks being launched by government and local council.

We have built the student actions, leafleted schools, colleges and in the street, held a protest outside the Town Hall, connected with council tenant groups - and started to be a focus for uniting and fighting the cuts. But we are running out of hands. None of us active members are techie-types - and our facebook/twitter/blogspot profiles are falling behind. We are not even finding time to upload our publicity leaflets! Nightmare!

We need someone willing to work with the other busy members to make sure our web presence reflects what we do and what we want to do. Can you help? Please contact Nicola at
