A group of residents in North west glasgow have got together to fight the cuts and defend services locally.
The first event was an anticuts conference which attracted 30 folks. There were talks from activists from many diferent spheres, from those locally who'd occupied a primary school a few years back, to NHS campaigners, to a speaker from the ongoing anticuts student occupation at Glasgow University. Most importantly we had many small table discussions.
We are now having regular organising meetings and have begun mapping the area to get a clear picture of how the cuts will affect our local area and what we can do both to defend local services, but also fight all the cuts to public services and the welfare state.
Our next event is a mapping workshop :
Its open to everyone interested in being involved in organising against the cuts in North west Glasgow.
At this workshop we will be continuing with the work we’ve already started by mapping the area: services, community groups etc that might be under threat. Key upcoming dates such as when the cuts are announced at a city level, when the national cuts will come into being. What community groups, activists etc we should be working with both locally and outwith the neighbourhood.
Wednesday 13th April. 7-9pm. The Free Hetherington. 13 University Gardens.
