The campaign
We have now reached crunch time. The council budgets are being set, redundancy notices sent out, services stopped or sold off, grants cut and the NHS destroyed. We must make an all-out effort to show that the majority of people in and around Bristol oppose this. A lot of BADACA group meetings have been organised; lots of leafleting will be done in the next two weeks. Please help out.

Demonstration 19 February

Assemble - 11.00am Castle Park
March to College Green for rally at 12.00pm

We need:

Several thousand people on it - bring yourself, your friends, family and neighbours, workmates and members of any organisation you belong to
Leaflets giving out to advertise it - see below

60 stewards - if you are willing to do this please reply to this e-mail. It involves traffic management along the route, taking a bucket collection and helping to clear up at the end.

There will be lots of coaches going from in and around Bristol to this event. Many have been booked by trade unions with priority being given to their members but BADACA will ensure that there is affordable transport to the demonstration available to all. Further details will be sent out when arrangements are clearer.

The South West TUC is co-ordinating transport from this area.
