The second regional anti-cuts meeting will be held on:
Wednesday 26 January,19:00 - 21:00.
At: Star and Shadow Cinema, Stepney Banks, Newcastle upon Tyne.
The cinema is at the town-side of Byker Bridge, 62 and 63 buses from town will get you there amongst others or metro to Manors.
At the first meeting (two weeks ago) it was proposed that we try to have a local anti-cuts meeting fortnightly to coordinate local campaigns, keep up to date with protests and different local struggles, inform and support each other and work together as students and workers and all members of the community against the cuts. We also set up some loose 'student-worker' groups that can start to build and support smaller campaigns.
Hope to see as many of you there as possible to help 'solidify' the way we might use these general meetings in the future. A blog/online site for collating info will be set up, mailing lists decided upon, possibly also how to structure our general meetings so that they remain useful and vital and not just another meeting you have to go to! Please come.
There are a few other anti-cuts meetings going on on the 26th, hopefully you can find time to go to both...
