|Fighting the Cuts
The Con-Dem government have launched a major attack on Britain’s welfare state, threatening the jobs and living standards of millions of working people.
Whose crisis? They claim that the national deficit demands massive cuts in our public services. The truth is neo-liberal governments throughout the world created the crisis, allowing the global banking system to career out of control in its unfettered pursuit of profit.
Who will pay? Not the fat cats. As usual, they expect ordinary working people to pay with the most savage cuts that this country has seen since the 1930s.
Our answer? Resistance!
Banner Theatre’s 1st of May Band is touring Fighting the Cuts!, a multimedia cabaret of songs, music, comedy and video. The Band delivers a punchy soundscape of reggae, rap, flamenco, folk and blues to lay bare the real story behind the crisis, and support the campaign to defend our welfare state.
See Banner's 1st of May Band performing a song from "Fighting the Cuts" at the Right to Work demonstration on Sun 3 Oct outside the Tory party conference in Birmingham.
The 1st of May Band is touring to venues and communities, and at rallies and demonstrations, across the country. See our website at www.bannertheatre.co.uk for full details of our tour.
