Tell our city councillors it’s time to reject the austerity scam and refuse to make cuts!
The council meeting will hear petitions from local residents on several important issues:
- The restructuring of the Learning Support Service for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The petition has almost 9,000 signatures from parents and other concerned citizens.
- Offering a generous welcome to refugees from Syria and other war zones. There are two petitions being presented, calling on the council to accept more refugee families. Facebook event page
- The plans to increase council tax bills for the poorest 15,000 households in the city by at least 33% from April. This petition is still open for signatures. The final decision on this issue will be made at the council meeting.
