Campaigners to hold Barking and Dagenham anti-cuts conference
Residents are invited to have their say on the effects of the public spending cuts and how to deal with them at a conference.
The Barking and Dagenham Against the Cuts campaign is encouraging community organisations to discuss and debate the issues on Saturday June 9.
Independent Cllr George Barratt, who organised public meetings against the cuts over the past year, said: “The purpose of the conference is to ascertain what local action could be taken to improve the situation in these problem areas. What can the residents of Barking and Dagenham do in the face of government austerity?”
Health, housing, jobs and pensions will all be on the agenda.
The event will be held at St Margaret’s Centre, The Broadway, Barking on from 1pm to 5pm.
