Thursday 2nd August 2012 at 7.30pm at the Sidney Walter Centre in Sussex Road to plan a March opposing the government’s austerity measures.

Worthing Solidarity Network very much welcomes the call from the TUC for a mass demonstration against cuts and austerity on October 20th in London, under the banner "A Future That Works".

In Worthing and West Sussex, as across the UK, the cuts are now hitting working people and their families hard. More people than ever before are angry about what the Coalition are doing, and trade unions can give a lead in uniting people fighting cuts, job losses and privatisation of our important public services. 

Around 400 people from the Worthing area attended the great "March for the Alternative" in March 2011, mobilised by local unions and the local anti-cuts group. We believe it should be possible to get even larger numbers from our area to join the protest this time around. To achieve this it will be essential for everyone to join in with local community groups, including those representing young people, pensioners, the disabled and other vulnerable groups hit hardest by austerity. 

It is important to get the ball rolling now on the necessary arrangements and on plans for publicity etc, so this meeting for all interested parties to come together to form an 'O20' committee, on Thursday 2nd August at 7.30pm at the Sidney Walter Centre in Sussex Road.

Amongst those who have initiated the meeting / will be attending, will be Unite, PCS, CWU Worthing Solidarity Network and a concerned public. We hope you can also attend and help make  "A Future That Works".
