Marching in Brighton to Keep the Post Public and to save public services

About 300 people marched through Brighton yesterday as part of a campaign by CWU to stop the privatisation of the post.  The march was supported by the Brighton Stop the Cuts Coalition and turned into a broad protest against cuts.

Speakers at the rally afterwards included -
Billy Hayes - General Secretary of the CWU
Dave Ward - Deputy General Secretary
Phil Clarke - Stop the Cuts Coalition
Caroline Lucas MP
Pip Tindall - Brighton Benefits Campaign

Labour speakers got a cool reception, with many people wondering why they were so against post privatisation now, when it had actually been their idea!
