The Struggle is Hotting up in Derby!

Action dates for the first week of November

Can you take part with just an hour or so of your time?

Support Postal Workers & Firefighters, Community Groups, Rail Campaigners & Direct Action Day

 Derby People’s Assembly on Oct 26th was a great success, showing how all the issues – the NHS, housing, benefits,

local government services, education, proper jobs, poverty etc – are linked together… and that we need one big, unified anti-austerity fight back movement. We need that unity if we are to win, not just protest!

 This coming week,  we can we translate the words into action in Derby.

Mon 4th November – Fire Brigades Union strike.

Not only are firefighters threatened by changes to their pension scheme that would result in many being sacked

before the age of retirement due to not reaching the required level of fitness,

but the whole fire service is threatened further by proposed major cuts.

The smell of privatisation is in the air! Again,

show your support for the fire fighters and the service as a whole by visiting the fire station picket lines

in Derby – Ascot Drive, Nottingham Road and Kingsway

We ask you all, whether able bodied or disabled, to sign the petition at www.wowpetition.com

The demands include a Cumulative Impact Assessment of all changes to benefits, an end to the Work Capability Assessment (which in 2011 alone left 10,600 people dead within six weeks of their benefits being stopped), an independent inquiry into austerity measures and a New Deal for sick & disabled people & cares to support and include them to fulfill their potential.

Illness or disability can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Please help us to show that sick and disabled people and carers in society should not have to bear the brunt of the cuts through this government’s austerity agenda and stand in solidarity and support by joining our campaign.
