BPACC - Hardest Hit Public Meeting

BPACC - Hardest Hit Public Meeting

BPACC campaigners held a public meeting on Saturday October 20 to discuss the impact that public spending cuts are having on some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

The event was part of a nationwide campaign and protest taking place on that day known as the Hardest Hit - which focused on issues such as changes to the disability living allowance and the closure of day care centres for people with learning disabilities.

The meeting which was organised by the Bournemouth and Poole Anti Cuts Coalition (BPACC) took place at Bournemouth Library. Speakers include representatives from Bournemouth People First, BPACC, Unison and Unite the Union.

Darren Brown, BPACC chair said: “Lots of evidence is beginning to emerge that those who are paying the highest price for the government’s spending cuts are those who are least able to afford it. People with long-term disabilities, pensioners, the unemployed and children are seeing their benefits and services under attack - when MPs and bankers still seem to be doing alright. It simply isn’t fair to ask those who are already struggling to pay the highest price.”
