The ConDem Coalition government has slashed funding to Southampton Council, whilst passing tax cuts on to the super-rich and their friends in big business. But Labour councillors in the city have failed to fight and have meekly implemented the cuts. Hundreds of jobs have gone and vital services in the city such as youth services, day centres and adult social care have been lost.
We need councillors who won’t vote for cuts like Coxford anti-cuts councillors, Keith Morrell and Don Thomas. Campaign victories have been won over Oaklands Pool and the Bitterne Walk-In, which show what can be done.
Join the campaign to restore council jobs and services. A united mass campaign of anti-cuts councillors, trade unions and the community can force the return of funding stolen since 2010.
On May 7th to oppose cuts, vote TUSC across Southampton.
In Coxford give your support to the campaign of anti-cuts councillor Don Thomas.
A vote for anyone else is a vote for cuts!
