Lets Keep Society’s Safety Net – PUBLIC MEETING

Edinburgh Anti Cuts Alliance is holding a public meeting at 7.30pm Friday 7th September 2012 in Portobello Town Hall

Join us in opposition to the Welfare Reform Act. This Act could lead to 3.5 million disabled people losing over £9.2 billion in benefits. In many cases the wrong decisions have been made regarding people’s urgent social needs. Are we going to stand by while people suffer? Let’s keep society’s safety net!

Speakers; Sasha Callaghan (Disability History), Abby Tindell (Local Resident), Sheila Gilmore MP (Scottish Labour), Councillor Norman Work (SNP)
