More than one thousand people marched with Notts Save Our Services to say the cuts are unnecessary, cruel and unjustified. It was a crisis caused by profligate bankers which plunged the world into recession, but it is us who are asked to pay in cuts to services, jobs and benefits.
This video features campaigners against the closure of Gedling School, Rachel Southern, who featured in local media reports when her son's care was cut. Trade unionists Jean Thorpe of Unison and Paul Williams of PCS give an alternative to massive cuts.
Notts Save Our Services was founded at a meeting of the Trades Council. We are an alliance of campaigning organisations, trade unions, community groups and individuals. All are welcome to meetings. Check www.nottssos.org.uk for more info.
