Supported by the CWC, the Communities Against Cuts campaign is a joint trade union and community sector initiative aimed at protecting and maintaining public investment in the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities across Ireland.

The Government is going to make choices for Budget 2013 that will affect services and jobs in local communities. It will choose how much money goes to services such as childcare, youth work, community employment, disability supports, eldercare and local and community development.

Previous budget cuts have brought the Community Sector to breaking point; we have to ensure that this time the Government makes the right choice.

Union activists have spent the past year campaigning and lobbying politicians and telling them why the sector needs to be protected, but now is the time to hit the streets.

On 24th November, 1pm Communities Against Cuts will be joining the Dublin Council of Trade Union’s pre-budget demonstration at Parnell Square, Dublin.

We are asking all workers and supporters to join us and send a clear message to Government; the previous austerity budgets have had a severe and disproportionate impact on the poorest individuals and families-no more cuts to community services and jobs!
