From Brent Fightback
BECAUSE THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER IMPORTANT MEETINGS TOMORROW EVENING, WEDNESDAY MARCH 4th, THERE WILL BE NO FIGHTBACK MEETING.
For a report on the Council's Budget setting meeting where all the cuts were agreed, see http://wembleymatters.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/butchery-at-civic-centre-as-labour.html?spref=fb and many bitter comments on the Brent Fightback Facebook page.
There was a small protest outside the glittering Civic Centre and a few Fightback supporters took the protest inside, but the butchery continued.
One week to go! And we are free from one major worry, since the authorities, under considerable public pressure, have agreed to close roads for us after all! Many thanks to all who supported us on that, but keep your eye out if you are concerned about rights to protest - there is no guarantee that other protest marches in the future will facilitated in this way.
We're still looking for a few more stewards on the day - the best way to sign up is using the stewards volunteer form but if you have any problems with that, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The bloc map went up today, to help everyone find their friends and fellow campaigners on the day.
Still time to publicise the march - invite your friends to join up on Facebook, by email or help us get the final batch of flyers out. And check www.timetoact2015.org for updates
See you there!
Claire, Lindsay and all at the Campaign against Climate Change
