Off to a good start

Over 200 people marched through Brixton this afternoon behind the banner of Lambeth UNISON, organised by Lambeth Save Our Services, the joint union-community anti-cuts coalition which last week won the support of Lambeth's influential Tenants' Council.

Before the march speakers from UNISON, UNITE and the Lambeth Pensioners Action Group were joined by the Right to Work Campaign and student activists.

Following the good humoured and lively march, the marchers were addressed by former Council Leader Ted Knight and left Labour Councillor Kingsley Abrams.

The message of the march was one of opposition to the ConDems and to all public spending cuts. All in all, a good start to local campaigning.

We have much further to go.
