Leeds TUC Budget Day Protest - City Square - 08 July 2015 - 5pm

Leeds Trades Union Council is organising a protest in Leeds on the day George Osborne announces his emergency budget which is set to further austerity in the UK by slashing public services. This will endanger the late and fragile recovery while further reducing living standards across the UK.

Leeds has a further reason to feel betrayed because the government has already rescinded its promise to develop a northern powerhouse by withdrawing investment to electrify the railways and improve transport links across the north.

Please attend to show opposition to austerity in Leeds and across the UK.

The protest will take place in City Square opposite Leeds Railway Station - 08 July 2015 - 5pm
