Stop the fire service cuts

Firefighters in Devon and Somerset have reacted with fury to swingeing cuts in which will reduce the fire service 'to the bone'.

The fire authority plans to close eight fire stations and get rid of 30 fire engines, yet claims there's no risk to the public!

The FBU firefighters union Devon and Somerset brigade secretary James Leslie said: "The FBU will not tolerate these dangerous plans and we plan to mobilise against them."

Socialist Party members will be mobilising through the trade unions and in the local communities in support of the FBU's action against the cuts.
