Solidarity with the Greek PeopleTagged as: cuts
Nottingham people express solidarity with the Greeks.
On Tuesday 14th. February people gathered in Old Market Square to express solidarity with the Greek people in their struggle against the politicians, bureaucrats and bankers. Around 30-35 people assembled at short notice and some passers-by stopped to listen to the speeches.
A young Greek woker joined us and said a few words. He has come here from Athens to work so that he can send money home to his family.. His father has lost his job.
Speakers pointed out that we have the same problems here in Britain with the Coalition Government and Labour City Council cutting public services, freezing wages and raising taxes.
Attention was drawn to Nottingham City Council which will be trying to pass its second cuts budget - £20 million of cuts to services and 195 redundancies - on Monday, 5th. March. By their militant action, the Greek people have shown the way forward. Speakers called for a mass demonstration on that day. Make Old Market Square into another Syntagma Square!
NO CUTS IN NOTTINGHAM! VICTORY TO THE GREEK PEOPLE! PEOPLE OF EUROPE, UNITE AND FIGHT!
