Cuts protest

PROTESTORS will be marching through Halifax to demonstrate against the proposed Government cuts.

Calderdale Save Our Services (CSOS) will meet at Halifax Town Hall car park at 10.30am on Saturday February 12 before marching to Halifax Piece Hall.

The main issues will focus on cuts to Calderdale Council’s budget, welfare benefits and public services.

CSOS was set up as a result of two public meetings in Hebden Bridge and Halifax in December as a broad coalition to fight the cuts and the group also wants people to lobby councillors about the cuts outside Halifax Town Hall at 5pm on February 16 and 28.

The CSOS is also going to attend the TUC’s anti-cuts demonstration in London on Saturday March 28. For details of transport email:
