The SERTUC Executive Committee is calling for your active support for street level action in every community on Saturday 15 January – organised by you!
The challenge is to counter the government’s lies about
• the economy has never been in such a state
• spending on public service are the cause of this
• deep cuts to public services are essential
• these are difficult decisions – but they are fair
Millions of media pounds and constant political repetition has given the public a diet of lies and half truths – so the Executive Committee believes we have to use our considerable human resources (our members and our commitment) to talk to our communities and win an understanding about the depth of the government’s political attack on working people.
What can you do?
The invitation is to all affiliates, trade union branches and trades councils: make your voice heard locally on Saturday 15 January
Can you organise a street meeting, workplace activity, a street stall, a demonstration, a media-worthy stunt, community leafleting, press release, street theatre – or any kind of event that will attract people to talk to you, that will attract local media coverage, and that will ensure that our neighbours understand that cuts are not the answer – and, we can make a difference.
Can you involve and work with local organisations – whether organisations campaigning on a specific issue such as a library closure, or broader groups such as Pensioners’ organisations or Tenants’ Associations?
