Leeds Against the Cuts Public Meeting and March against Lansley Bill to privatise NHS.

Building the Resistance...HOW CAN WE STOP THE CUTS

Public Meeting
Called by Leeds Against the Cuts and Local Government Unison
Tuesday 24th May - 7 pm-  Leeds Civic Hall

The government wants to cut back and privatise our NHS, tear up pay & pension agreements and make us pay for a crisis caused by the bankers.  Now campaigns against ConDem health proposals are springing up across the country, and on 30th June hundreds of thousands of workers will be out on strike across the country.

Come here speakers from local campaigns and trade unions, including those unions who are planning strike action on June 30th.  How can we organise to kill the health bill and build solidarity across the Leeds area with this first day of coordinated strike action against the cuts.
