Hey, here's the call-out for a demonstration on Saturday, called by the parents and workers at High School Yards and Princess Elizabeth nurseries - under threat from closure. It's going to be held in conjunction with UK Uncut, and would be great to see as many people as possible along to show support!
Edinburgh, Sat 5th Mar 2011
At 11.30am the Big Society Revenue and Customs joins community groups in Edinburgh to protest against the proposed closure of two nursery schools (High School Yards nursery and Princess Elizabeth nursery).
We'll meet outside the city chambers on the High Street before moving on to our favourite high street stores and banks from 12:30. It would be really good to get lots of people to join for both the nursery and high street protests.
If big corporations like Vodafone, Barclay, RBS and Topshop paid their taxes we wouldn't currently be seeing the massive cuts to council budgets that are devastating our local services.
See you on the streets.

More action on thursday 10 March when there will be a demo and delegation at full council meeting at city chambers against the closures, council meeting starts 10am so demo will prob be from around 9am, more info to follow.
