London: Stop council cuts - Budget Day protest and meeting
- Expose Johnson's lies that he has working class interests at heart
- Councils must fight the cuts!
Wednesday 11th March 2020, from 12 noon
Outside Downing Street, Whitehall, London
Peter Taaffe, Socialist Party general secretary and former editor of Militant, said: "Austerity must end. Johnson has claimed it's over but he lies as he speaks. The Tories have already indicated they will demand 5% cuts across government departments. And the Tory plan to wind up the funding of local government means further devastation for millions of people piled on what has already been suffered. We have no choice but to carry on the fight against austerity."
