Brilliant response to protest

THERE was a brilliant response from the Worthing public to our protest in the town centre on Saturday.

The Worthing Solidarity Network event coincided with the Ukuncut national day of action against corporate tax dodgers and this was taken up as the theme of the day.

Our prominent stall in Montague Place attracted loads of interest from shoppers and a thousand leaflets were handed out.

People are really understanding the link between the cuts being imposed on ordinary people and the huge profits still being gathered in by Big Business tycoons with the approval of their friends in the Conservative Party. 

We also staged a mass tour of some of the worst Fat Cat tax dodging companies in Montague Street, demonstrating peacefully but noisily with chants, megaphone and banners outside Vodafone, Topshop, Boots and BHS.

Police were out in force to protect the corporate sector from our crack team of protesters and formed lines outside the front of all the shops mentioned, thus adding to the spectacle and drawing yet more interest from the public.

With public anger at Tory policies rising every day, these protests are only going to get bigger and bigger in the months ahead!
Untouchables?

Despite the death of Ian Tomlinson, the six-hour brain operation to save the life of the young student following a cowardly police baton attack on his head and the numerous other grievous bodily harm attacks by them on anyone who dares to protest, the Home Secretary says she fully supports the police. (Sky News 11.10am, December 12.)

So despite the impending Inquiry into the way the various protests were policed, this arrogant woman has become Judge and Jury as well as Home Secretary.

UK stuffed by Short Sighted MP’s


The future looks bleaker than ever today for our skills base following yesterday’s decision in the commons to scare off future doctors, engineers, scientist etc by the thought of massive long-term debt.

Clearly those blinkered MP’s don’t get out much into the real world otherwise they’d see the results of the free education given in the Far East and South American countries. History will record yesterday’s vote as yet another lurch into obscurity for Britain as countries like China and South Korea increasingly dominate everything that’s produced.

Pots of money in the Bank, why the cuts then?

With the news that WSCC has non-capital reserves of over £62 Million the question has to be asked. Why is this money not used to protect services instead of sitting in a dodgy Bank somewhere? We demand an answer from councillors.
Join us tonight, 1 December at 8pm for the latest anti-cuts reports and to
help plan an Xmas fancy-dress anti-cuts demo in Worthing on 18th Dec.

The meeting is at the Beechwood Hall, Wykeham Road (go past library out of town, it's on the
right a few hundred yards past the mini roundabout in Richmond Rd).
Lib Dems in chaos!
