Nottingham City Unison organised a public protest at 12.30-1.30pm in the Market Square, in front of the Council House. 

Today, the City Council Executive Board discussed and recommended the 2011/12 budget to the full council. 

Thus, Unison had called a public demonstration with speakers. They Said:

"With £60 million cuts threatening up to 600 jobs at the city council, staff facing pay cuts and 7,000 vulnerable people facing withdrawal of their voluntary sector support, city services are in crisis.  Nottingham city unison calls on all council staff, service users, voluntary sector groups and the public in Nottingham, join our protest.  

We are standing up for Nottingham, and we think the city council should do too.  We demand the government returns the £60 million stolen from it in this year’s grant settlement.  

We also call upon the city council’s leaders to join us in this fight."

It ia not enough to curse the government. It is also necessary to forcibly remove them or at least, to occupy Westminster until we get the government we accept (and therefore, deserve)!
