    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.

    We're pleased to announce that Joanne Land will be speaking on behalf of 999 Call for the NHS. This group, based in Darlington, is organising the March for the NHS this summer - it will leave Jarrow on 16 August and arrive in Westminster on 6 September. The People's Assembly is proud to support this great initiative and we will work together to mobilise against cuts and privatisation in our NHS.

    We are delighted to confirm that Northern TUC regional secretary Beth Farhat will be speaking at the meeting. You may have heard Beth speak at Newcastle's May Day rally or at last September's North East People's Assembly. With the 21 June national demo and a likely day of co-ordinated strike action on 10 July approaching, we're pleased to have one of the region's leading trade unionists on the platform.
