This strategy document sent out from the People's Assembly national office to all local groups with their strategy for building the resistance to council cuts over the coming years may be of interest to you (we'll it should be :p).
You'll note all of our councillors are in either Group 2 or Group 3 of councillors according to the PA scheme, and it should be our job as Green Lefter's to work with the PA in pressuring more and more of them into moving into group 3 and then setting Needs Budgets.
(In Bristol in the last budget we managed to get 9 of our councillors to vote against the budget, and the other 5 abstained. Other than Gus Hoyt, none of our councillors have now voted for a cuts budget).
All the best,
