Hackney March(ed) Against the Cuts!

Nearly 700 people braved cold drizzle on Feb 19th and joined the Hackney Alliance to Defend Public Services “Hackney Marchs Against the Cuts”! It was a fantastic turnout and a great march with a great atmosphere with people from all communities of Hackney marching to the sound of a samba band! Banners were there from Homerton Hospital Unison, Hackney Council Unison, Hackney Equity, Hackney Keep Our NHS Public, Day Mer and Gik Der and Anadolu Community Centres, North East London ANti Racist Alliance, Hackney Right To Work, Hackney Stop the War and many others! Speeches were heard, in English and Turkish, from Alex Gordon RMT President and Rob Williams Chair of the National Shop Stewards Network, Brian Gardener Chair Hackney Council Unison, Cllr Ian Rathbone (Leabridge ward) of ‘Their Cuts Not Ours’, Hackney Right to Work, Hackney Stop the War, Hackney Green Party, Youth Fight for Jobs, and many others, campaigners and ordinary Hackney people angry about national and local cuts to our services. And next up; Wednesday March 2nd! (Photos from Guy Smallman, Phil Wolmuth and Peter Marshall)
