As cuts in services begin to bite, resistance is springing up across the country and Nottingham is no exception. Locally there are a number of campaigns around a number of issues. A well attended meeting organised by the Trades Council was the catalyst for the emergence of a new anti-cuts coalition called Notts Save Our Services.

Notts SOS launched on September 29 as millions of workers take to the streets across Europe in a Day of Action to protest against government-imposed austerity measures. In Spain, trade unionists held the first general strike in eight years, while in Brussels up to 100,000 demonstrators marched against austerity, while a small group clashed with police.
