Hastings Anti-cuts campaigners call rally and march to support pension cut strikes.

On Wednesday 30 November, the main teaching, civil service and local government unions are due to strike against pension cuts. Unions say these cuts will leave the average worker paying a month’s extra salary a year in exchange for a smaller pension starting after years more work – all to cut a deficit created by the bailing out of banks, the tax evasion of large corporations and the constant funnelling of public money into private hands via privatisation, PFI and the endless hiring of “management consultants” to make the decisions managers are already being paid to deal with.

Anti-dog poo campaign goes Guerilla!

While the council fiddles, Archery Ground suffers – and at times burns. Waiting for Gladedale
