Anti Cuts Carols!
A good time was had by all as we entertained passers-by to Christmas carols with a difference outside Hove Town Hall last Saturday.
We held up a giant poster showing our Christmas wish list together with six separate placards each showing one of the ‘wishes’. These included the repeal of recent NHS legislation, and the reinstatement of millions of pounds slashed from Brighton & Hove City Council’s budget. The group sang alternative words to familiar tunes to get their powerful festive message across. Supporters and passers-by joined in to sing topical versions of traditional favourites such as ‘Away in a Manger’:
Away in a Manger
No houses to rent
Our benefits capped
Should we live in a tent
We want a fair system
And know this makes sense
No tax breaks for the richest
There is no defence
Brighton and Hove’s Tory MPs Mike Weatherley and Simon Kirby will receive a Christmas photo-card of the event, along with a special Christmas parcel containing dozens of postcards previously signed at the group’s stalls by local people opposed to the savage cuts.
We’re looking forward to our next public event, focusing on the impact of austerity on women, to be held at the Brighthelm Centre on 2nd February, 1.00-4.00pm.”
Saturday 15th December, outside Hove Town Hall, 11-11.45am
All welcome – please come and bring your friends. Wearing of festive hats encouraged!
