Residents from Burngreave joined Cllr Jackie Drayton on a march and demonstration against the Government cuts.
From Ellesmere Green, on 23rd October, chants and placards carried the message, “there is an alternative”. Thousands attended the demonstration against savage attacks on working people and communities, at the Town Hall protest.
Speakers told the crowd the ‘deficit’ is an excuse to privatise services: a 2% wealth tax on the super-rich would raise £78 billion in one year; a ‘Robin Hood’ tax on City financial transactions would raise £30billion.
