Activists from the broad-based, anti-cuts group Citizens United set up an information stall today, outside Lidl on Glasgow's Victoria Road.
The stall was set up in response to the call for a national day of action to protest benefits cuts:
The activists distributed hundreds of leaflets outlining the impending, vicious attack on the poor; gathered petition signatures and listened to public concerns.
The public response was totally positive and encouraging. It is becoming clear that the general public is behind the anti-cuts protests, the student protests and that despite all the propaganda there is no one buying the lie that "we are all in this together."
Many of the people who stopped to chat and take literature were pensioners and the disabled who were rightly concerned and outraged by the so-called austerity measures- the kind of people who are now no longer just prime targets for muggers but also prey for public schoolboy thugs like David Cameron too.
