    If you still need to book seats for our coaches to the 21 June national demo, you can do so on Thursday. Don't miss out! The march and free festival in London is saying No More Austerity, Demand the Alternative!

    Rosalind Copeland is a Labour councillor in Sunderland, who has been active in anti-cuts campaigns in her area. She has previously spoken eloquently about the human and social impact of cuts on people's lives. We are pleased that she will be joining the platform for this public meeting.

    Stephen Douglas, an early years practitioner in Newcastle, will be speaking at the meeting. He is involved in the campaign to stop a devastating 65% cut to Newcastle's Sure Start provision. We urge everyone to support this campaign. Please let people know about Thursday's meeting and invite them along to hear the anti-cuts arguments.
