Protesters demanded a rethink on the threatened closure of four respite and day care centres in Kent. £80 million of cuts are coming and there has been an online consultation requesting suggestions on what to cut!
I spoke to Sue Black, a service user who said: "my mum goes there four days a week. When she has been left on her own she falls. They promised to offer an alternative but there has been no answer to what we will do without the centre. They will be left indoors to rot! Shame on you Kent County Council for picking on the old and vulnerable."
The protest was organised by Unite, Unison and other trade unions as well as a coming together of the Socialist Party, Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, Momentum and the South Eas Kent trades council. We are holding a public meeting on 26 November in Maidston to continue this fight.
