Day of Action Against Austerity

A ‘Day of Action Against Austerity’ will take place in Derry city centre next month.

The event is being organised by the local People Before Profit group for Saturday, April 18.

A spokesperson for the group says: “We encourage all others - unions, community groups, arts organisations, those on benefits, private sector workers, the unemployed, students, environmental protection groups - who oppose the Stormont House Agreement policies to join us.

“Stormont is depending on apathy to push through an agenda that will benefit the 1% and corporations.”

“What we do matters and our efforts will determine the direction of our society... Local newspapers are daily reporting on the casualties of Stormont’s cuts. These cuts should outrage us all. More action is necessary.”
