The IWW, along with other unions and organisations, has campaigned against this dangerous move during the last few years. Unsurprisingly when management proposed these cuts there was the bare minimum of consultation with hospitals and none with the public. Now that the cuts are happening, the least we can do is take the message to the streets and make sure that Birmingham is well informed of exactly what is happening to our public services.
Show some love for the blood service on Valentine’s Day!
* We need cyclists! Lots and lots of cyclists! - To form the body of the convoy behind a large van with banners.
* We also need car drivers who can carry extra protestors.
