Flyer and leaflet for the Radical Workers Bloc on September 19th now available
UPDATE: When the literature for this event was originally produced, the date for the TUC march was Saturday 18th September. It has since been moved to Sunday 19th. The leaflets and the release below have been amended accordingly.
A flyer and a leaflet (both PDF) for the Radical Workers Bloc at the protest against the Liberal Democrats’ Autumn Conference are now available. We’ll be getting these around Liverpool over the next week.
NO TO JOB LOSSES
NO TO BENEFIT CUTS
NO TO PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS
The Merseyside Trades Union Council has called a demonstration at the Liberal Democrats’ annual conference. This has been billed as “against coalition cuts in public jobs and services” – but we want more.
Of course, we need to protect jobs. Every job lost to redundancy means a greater workload for those who remain. An injury to one really is an injury to all. We also need to stop the cuts that take away vital services, hard-won by generations of struggle. But these are not Liberal Democrat, Tory, or even coalition cuts – they are cuts by the ruling class, which we would be facing regardless of which party was in power.
FIGHT THE CUTS: STRIKE, OCCUPY, ORGANISE!
Liverpool Solidarity Federation and others are forming a Radical Workers’ Bloc on the demonstration. We reject the notion that a different government will bring about a solution for us – the cuts will be defeated on the streets and on the picket lines, not at the ballot box.
We need to send a message not only to this coalition government but to all political parties. The working class will not take these attacks on our livelihood lying down. We do not need anyone’s permission to fight back, and we do not need politicians or bureaucrats to lead us.
Join us on the Radical Workers’ Bloc on 19th September. We will be marching from the Anglican Cathedral to the Echo Arena. Look for the red & black flags and banners.
