Protest march in York over Government cash cuts
11:12am Saturday 23rd October 2010 in News
A MARCH and rally against Government cuts was being staged in York city centre today.
The York Stop The Cuts –Right to Work campaign is staging the event, with protesters asked to gather in Parliament Street at 1pm for a march through the city centre at 1.30pm to defend jobs, services and communities.
Speakers will include Ben Drake of the union UNISON, Green city councillor Dave Taylor and Father Tim Jones, the parish priest of St Lawrence and St Hilda, who provoked worldwide controversy last Christmas when he advised needy people to shoplift from large national businesses in certain circumstances.
