SALFORD AGAINST THE CUTS

UNISON, UNITE, GMB and Salford Trades Council are amongst the first organisations to back a broad based campaign against the cuts in Salford, which begins with a meeting in Eccles on November 29th.

They are joined by former MP Ian Stewart and actress Maxine Peake, who says that she is supporting the meeting "because I believe the attacks the Government is proposing will have a devastating impact on areas like Salford. I hope to be at the meeting on the night and I hope many more will join me."

Speakers on the night will include Matt Wrack, the General Secretary of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU), who is originally from Salford, and Sarah Davies of the Save Hope Maternity Campaign. The organisers hope that this will be the start of a coalition of all those opposed to job losses and cuts in the vital services Salford needs.

"The meeting will provide an opportunity for all who attend to tell their stories and explain why they oppose the cuts that are being proposed" says a spokesperson for the campaign "Those who want to get more involved in building Salford Against Cuts will be asked to leave their details and the plan is to lay the foundations of a movement that will hold meetings in different communities, organise events and be prepared to stand with those facing the loss of jobs or services."

Alex Halligan, Secretary of Salford Trades Council adds:

"The Government is proposing the harshest attacks on the living conditions of ordinary people for generations. We cannot afford to sit back and let them get away with it. Salford needs jobs and it needs public services.
"Those of us involved in the trade unions do not just want to protect our jobs. We want to stand side by side with our families, friends and neighbours and send a message to this Government that we will resist any attacks on the living conditions of people in Salford. Why should we pay for the greed of the bankers and the mistakes of the politicians?"

City of Salford Moto - "Salus Populi Suprema Lex" - The Welfare of the People is the Highest Law. Food for thought.

The most vulnerable people are those who become totally dependent on any services provided across the City of Salford. Where a dependent person is consequently unable to discuss and express any service result as discomfort the questions are have the cuts already compromised the statutory intent to avoid causing suffering? Have the cuts already frustrated and compromised service providers ability to identify suffering and act within the intent of the law? Will further cuts succeed because cuts have already created a culture of ignorance of protective statutes, a culture of disrespect for prior hard work to establish good practices? Are these the people to whom we will turn our backs to complain none the less that service standards are slipping? I will take the statute in my left hand, some fresh water in my right hand. I will protest by learning I am well informed and within my rights. I can support if I am supported. Here endeth the first lesson to the government. "Thou shallt not neglect your dependents nor those who commit to supporting your dependents"
