Dear anti-cuts activists
The workers who are being asked to implement the government’s harsh 'Welfare Reform' will be on strike this Wednesday.
Can you forward this email to your networks, and encourage members to support the events shown below.
Secretary, Southwark SOS campaign
The UK government is drastically scaling back public services under the false claim that cuts are necessary to address the financial crisis caused by the collapse of the banking sector. The PCS union is campaigning for
- investment in HMRC to close the tax gap,
- investment in the DWP to support people most in need at a time of mass unemployment and to generate revenue to fund other essential public services.
Support local picket lines from 8am-9.30am
As always any act of solidarity, messages to those on strike and visits to picket-lines are very welcome. In Southwark pickets should be at the following JCP offices
· London Bridge (Newington Causeway)
· Peckham JCP (Peckham High St)
If you can send a message of support by email, please send it to Sarah Murdock (PCS DWP Lambeth and Southwark branch organiser) at firstname.lastname@example.org or text to 07879424631.
Come to a strike day rally at 12noon
