Community sector workers, users and members of the public are being asked to gather in Ebrington Square this Thursday to protest against cuts to services that departmental heads have described as inevitable after Secretary of State Chris Heaton-Harris' Budget 2023-24.

The ‘Day of Action’ has been called in response to what organisers have described as ‘austerity and cuts to vital frontline and community services’.

Aileen McGuinness, manager at the Bogside and Brandywell Health Forum (BBHF), urged people to come along to the demonstration at 1pm on Thursday.

“Cuts to frontline and community services are having a devastating effect on some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Please join us on Thursday as we will be taking part in the ‘Community Day of Action’ in Ebrington Square at 1pm,” she stated.

A sister protest will be held at the Pagoda in Abercorn Square, Strabane, also at 1pm, on Thursday.
