Brighton Stop the Cuts Coalition
We are a coalition of over 60 local, trade union, community, campaigning and political groups against the cuts, founded by Brighton Trades Council. We held a very successful launch meeting of 250 people last year, along with a 2,000 strong rally in October. We played a central role in the student protests towards the end of last year, and have given support to workers in struggle against the closure of a local nursery, local journalists on strike, connexions workers facing redundancies and so on. Our campaigns at the moment are focussed on benefit cuts and solidarity with workers in struggle. We are conducting successful meetings in local areas of Brighton and beyond to try and encourage branches of BSTCC to be formed. We will also be holding anti-cuts hustings for council candidates and issuing a statement for them to support or not challenging the notion that ‘councillors have no choice’ and calling on them to fight the cuts.
