Barnet Alliance for Public Services
BARNET ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC SERVICES
We champion democratically accountable, high-quality public services. We reject the idea that public services should be cut in order to bail out the banks.
We reject Barnet council’s plans for mass outsourcing of its services – no to the One Barnet programme!
We oppose privatisation and cuts to public services, whether NHS, education, or local authority, and will resist them.
We oppose free schools and the extension of academies.
We note that Barnet residents and council employees have resisted damaging policies, scrutinised and exposed questionable contracts with private
companies, are becoming aware of the impact of various decisions of the council and are actively organising to oppose unpopular plans, all with some
success. This shows that public pressure works!
