We will discuss the lessons for our fight against cuts to jobs and services today. (For a summary of the story, see here.)

Description: 

March on Lib Dem conference 

The lib dems are in Newcastle on Saturday 10th March for their Spring conference. 

Let's say CLEGG OFF! to cuts.

No more toadying to the Tories. We didn't vote for austerity. 

We march in protest against the party which: 
- is privatising our NHS
- sold out over Tuition Fees and student finance
- is doing nothing about the 2.7 Million unemployed
- instead refuses to invest in real jobs
- yet enslaves the unemployed for no pay through "workfare"
- is cutting welfare to the most vulnerable in our society

Clegg off is a coalition of groups and campaigns, students, community activists, trade unionists and pensioners.  We are organising this march and asking you to join us:
