SALFORD AGAINST THE CUTS BEGIN FIGHTBACK
 

Star date: 4th February 2013

SO MUCH TO FIGHT FOR IN SALFORD

Salford Against the Cuts Public Meeting
Saturday 9th February 11am
Swinton Royal British Legion

Want to fight back against the cuts in Salford? Like, where do start – mental health services, day care centres, kids with disabilities, bedroom tax, council tax benefits, Ordsall Hall? The list goes on and on. But Saturday morning's Salford Against the Cuts public meeting will be a forum but everyone to air everything against the axe people in the ConDem Government and Salford Council.

Full details here…


We here it every day – more cuts, more misery, more people saying `I don't know what I'm going to do!' Well here's something everyone can do…

Salford Against the Cuts is holding a public meeting this coming Saturday morning, 9th Feb at 11am, to which everyone is invited. There will be speakers from USUC, which represents mental health service users campaigning to keep their drop-in groups, and from Ordsall Hall, fighting to keep the historic building open to the public and school kids.

Other speakers are expected to include those campaigning to keep Day Centres open for the old and vulnerable, and representatives from Royal Court which closes on 31st March (see here). But everyone's got a story about the cuts from both Salford Council and the ConDem Government, and the idea of the meeting is to hear those stories, unite the campaigns and do something about it all.

Whether it be Bedroom Tax hardship, Council Tax benefits cuts, disability allowance cuts or slashing jobs and wages, Salford Against the Cuts is inviting people to join its campaign.

Saturday 9th February 11am
Swinton Royal British Legion
3 Cheetham Road, M27 4UQ

What planet is Gareth on.Think you will find you have to pay your utilities and none payment will lead to a lot of problems.They can gain entry into your property.They can prove you are watching a TV and they know if you have a license.

Hi Dave, I thought I'd just comment to say I haven't been able to afford my bill for years and so have not paid it, there is nothing United Utilities can do in terms of enforcement of the supposed debt. I have received only a few letters in that time, if you tell them you no longer live at address they will start writing to the previous tenant also. If you've just moved in never contact/contract with them and they will write to the wrong people while leaving you alone. Might be useful to you. Also TV licensing does not have to be paid as in this country we don't have to testify against ourselves and so there is no possibility for them to prove the watching of the TV. Google it if you haven't.
