Members of the Bournemouth and Poole Anti Cuts Coalition (BPACC) will protest outside today’s meeting of Poole’s council (March 1st) in opposition to the planned cuts in services.

Poole Borough is planning 14 million pounds worth of cuts and it’s thought as many as 160 jobs will go.

Demonstrators will be gathering outside the Civic Centre, from 6pm along with banners, placards and musical instruments.

Darren Brown, BPACC chair said: “Local councillors must be made aware that cutting services are not a painless option. These cuts will affect real people – and those who need the services most will suffer the most. That simply isn’t fair. Rather than simply carrying out the government’s dirty work for them, the council should be standing up to ministers and saying they will not make cuts that will create more social deprivation and a wider gap between the haves and the have nots.”

BPACC is planning a series of activities and protests over the coming months that will include events during the May council elections.
