Carnival Against Cuts – Saturday 19th February

Right to Work are joining with campaigning groups throughout the borough to organise a borough-wide protest on February 19th, outside the threatened services, libraries, children’s centres and the town hall.

There will also be protests outside banks, who have continued to pay huge bonuses to their bosses while failing to lend money to small businesses who could help regenerate the area.

People will gather from 11am to 12noon, singing, chanting, giving out leaflets to passers by and then at 12 noon we will all bang our saucepans with wooden spoons or saucepan lids to make a cacophony of noise.

After the protest people will make their way to the Town Hall in Catford to assemble by 1pm for a short march past Lewisham Hospital, to be joined there by health campaigners from Keep Our NHS Public, then on past Ladywell Leisure Centre, being run-down by privateers Parkwood Leisure, past the fire station where FBU members may well be on strike and finishing with a short rally on the grassy area on the corner of Lewisham High Street and Rennel Street.
