Anti-cuts march

WIGAN is gearing up for a major anti cuts march through the town centre.

Trade unionists have been invited to gather at the Upper Morris Street Working Mens Club at 1pm on Saturday (January 22nd) with their banners.

They will then procession up Standishgate and back down Library Street for a rally at the club with key speakers from across the Labour movement. To join the list of speakers, contact Wigan Trades Council secretary Terry Abbott on 07719572001.

Mr Abbott said: “ We are calling on trade unions and the community to unite against the cuts this weekend.

“Or message is bring your banners and your families and let us fight this all the way.”
