The Time to Organise Resistance to Cuts is NOW

Guardian ‘Comment is Free’ piece

Tony Benn – the old labour party, the Labour Party that used to care about the ordinary person in the street, has written this piece.

The ConDem rhetoric about there being no cuts to frontline services – WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

That is actually the majority of what is happening – dressed up as re-alignmnent, improvements, moves to ‘alternative providers’ or a number of other weasel worded spin speak euphemisms for “we actually don’t care because you are poor and can’t stop us”

I know because I am experiencing these cuts with my family, and I am also supporting families and friends who are also experiencing them.

So now we need to stand up, stand together – and SPEAK OUT.
