BPACC Council Cuts Protest
At a noisy, placard-waving rally outside Poole’s Civic Centre, the Bournemouth and Poole Anti-Cuts Coalition urged councillors to resign and seek re-election before passing on any cuts from central government.
The group which now boasts 200 members, has been staging demos for the last few months and members picketed Communities Minister Eric Pickles when he attended Any Questions at Poole Grammar School. They also protested outside Bournemouth Council’s last full meeting.
BPACC press officer Neil Duncan-Jordan said: “The role of local government is to stand up to central government.
“Councillors of every shade should be resigning and standing again for election. Then at least the public will know what they are getting.”
BPACC is a coalition of local people and includes pensioners, students, public sector workers and trades unionists.
