12-01-2013 19:19Following the two protests held earlier in the week over the sacking of David Muritu https://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/birmingham/2013/01/505316.html, a union activist and Maths Lecturer at Halesowen College, three more lecturers have been fired. All members of the Maths department, all active union members.
In total at least 250 protested outside Sheffield Town Hall against the Labour council's planned slashing of Sure Start children's centres and nurseries.
The council is aiming to cut £3.5m from these centres. Currently there are 36 centres, all Ofsted registered and providing childcare, health, education and family support. All would be downgraded.
Instead the aim is to have 17 children's centre 'areas', with each area having only one nursery. The council calls its proposals a 'redesign' and incredibly has claimed that the service will improve, reaching more children.
Yet, at the same time, it blames the government for forcing the cuts on it - thereby implying that the service will suffer.
19 of the 36 centres have been earmarked for closure. Five of the seven centres that received an 'outstanding' grade from Ofsted last year are amongst those under threat.
Many nursery workers and parents have been told that their centres will be closed by March 2013 at the latest.
Yet the council is saying that there will be no closures. What it means is that it will use all the sites for something - it's just that 19 of them won't have childcare services!

The occupation was established in protest at UCL’s plan to open a new campus in Stratford, east London. The development of the campus would require the demolition of the Carpenters’ Estate, and the eviction of hundreds of council tenants from their homes. Robin Wales, the Labour executive mayor of Newham, has defended the plans. Among his many justifications, he has said: “you find people who say it’s their chance to move to Southend.”
