Gathering at 1.00pm, about 150 or so folks braved the rain at the anti-cuts rally in the Market Square.

A variety of speakers. We heard from community and disability campaigns, unions, service users, homeless people, and students about how angry they are at the cuts facing these sectors. It was a lively rally that lasted a couple of hours, with stalls and singing.

Afterwards Vodafone [yet again], BHS, Natwest Bank and Boots were all visited by UK Uncut protesters.
