Nipsa lunchtime public campaign against the cuts 12th August 2010

On Thursday 12th August 2010, Nipsa launched its campaign to raise awareness about the impact of the draconian cuts the Tories are proposing on public services across the North of Ireland.

Trade Union TV visited Belfast where Nipsa has a significant membership to find out the concerns and actions of public servants in response to the proposed Tory cuts. Watch a video of the action from the ground and Nipsa members thoughts on the campaign against the cuts.

From the Nipsa website:

NIPSA General Secretary, Brian Campfield, stated:-

"We want to highlight to the public the disastrous consequences for the local economy, for employment and for local communities resulting from the loss of tens of thousands of public sector jobs. We agree with the statement by David Blanchflower, Professor of Economics at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA that:-

'these dangerous and unnecessary austerity measures must be reversed'.

We also want to highlight that there is an alternative to these cutbacks. The Government can reduce the deficit by making the wealthy in our society pay a greater share of taxation.

In addition the Government should start chasing the Ł123bn lost to the public purse every year as a result of tax avoidance, illegal tax evasion and uncollected taxes.

The public need to know that the Government propaganda that the only way to cut the deficit is to cut public spending is a lie."
