Here is anti-cuts round up for the South East from Pip from the Green Party and Green Left!


Brighton Anti-Cuts Coalition

The march last Saturday was very well supported with up to 2000 taking part. Local Green Party members turned out in force. There was a great reception for Caroline & her call to fight back, & for myself speaking on behalf of Brighton Benefits Campaign & urging solidarity against the exploiters.

Next Monday 8 November we have a public meeting from 7.30pm at the Brighthelm Centre to build on the momentum & organise the next step including setting up district anti-cut groups.

Brighton Benefits Campaign

A lot of interest & new members since the public meeting & the march. We are making links with voluntary/campaigning groups, producing information leaflets, planning our next newsletter & actions including local stalls.

We also have some fund-raising/publicising events coming up -

Three Voices - Three plays put on Monday 8th & Tuesday 9th November at the Marlborough Theatre in Brighton
- local playwright Craig Jordan-Baker is kindly donating his share of the proceeds to BBC & is using our materials to inform playgoers.

Benefit Nights - one to be arranged in the new year by local folk/protest singer Robb Johnson, another with music/comedy in March - details TBC

Following a deputation to the B&H council meeting on October 21st, the group are keeping on with the campaign, planning to expand it with regular stalls, a new petition, contact with the parents & students, & possible lobbying of councillors & governors.
