Protesting in Dorchester

Protesting in Dorchester


The anti-cuts movement keeps getting bigger. On Saturday some 1,000 people marched in Dorchester, Dorset.

It came as 600 people protested in Oxford, 400 in Preston and another 400 in Norfolk.

The Unite union held a 1,000-strong national rally for young people and youth workers in Solihull. And firefighters staged a rally against cuts in Suffolk.

On Friday, up to 100 parents and children held a sit-down protest outside St Jude’s Primary School in south London over cuts to lollipop people.

And on Sunday around 70 people slept rough outside Coventry town hall to highlight cuts to homeless services.

Hundreds more joined protests last week in Middlesbrough, Leigh, Worcester, Cambridge, Halifax, Greenwich, Portsmouth, Darlington, Lincoln, Wandsworth, Salisbury and more.
