This is only the beginning of a decimation of our communities and public services.
The future jobs fund which helps medium to long term 18-24 year old benefit claimants to get into work and the migration impact fund that helps areas with high levels of immigration through providing support to families new to the country. Typical Tory attacks on some of the most vulnerable sectors of our communities, immigrants and the young unemployed. You can be sure that this is nothing to what is going to happen when they start on the benefits system, and making full on cuts.
We need to fight back against these cuts and organise, there is a demonstration planned outside the Tory party conference on the 3rd of October and I will be there. Transport details will be here soon
Also there is the http://coalitionofresistance.wordpress.com/ which is having a conference at Camden Centre in London on 27 November 2010.

Around this time of year many students are leaving, or have just left, their private rented accommodation. Aside from the frantic cleaning and figuring out how on earth they are going to move the junk collected through three years of university back home; one topic bothers pretty much all of them. How to get their deposits back. ... read full story / add a comment

I think I've fallen into the trap myself and become obsessed with Middle Eastern politics along with everyone else. And this is wrong - the point I've been trying to make has started to take over and I'm not doing anything positive.
Someone in another thread has asked when I am organising my own protest and why I'm not doing something useful rather than shouting at people, and I think these are valid complaints, so I'm going to rise to that challenge. So here it is: ... read full story / add a comment
