Spen Valley Against the Cuts is a community based network of people trying to fight the proposed ConDem cuts in the public sector.

We are against any cuts to our public services, against the privatisation of public services, against any proposed job losses and against cuts in pay or conditions to workers. We also feel that public services should be more accountable to the community that uses them.

There are alternatives to ‘the cuts’. If you look around this website then you will see that. For a brief introduction to why the cuts are wrong then read The Cuts? and Countering the Cuts Myths.

Don’t believe the lies of the government and the media that ‘we need cuts’ and ‘we’re all in this together’. This simply is not true, and it’s about time people realised this!

If you want to get involved in the group, it is open to anyone who agrees with our aims. Just contact us for more information on how you can get involved.
