Get Up Stand Up Campaign
Where are the plans to protect peoples' jobs, or create new employment? Where are the plans to protect peoples' homes from repossession? And where are the plans to protect vital services at a time when greater numbers will come to depend on them?
The course of action proposed by Government is both unworkable and unfair. To cut peoples' incomes in a recession invites economic freefall and to impose the greatest burden on low and middle income earners is unjust. They played no role in causing this crisis and should not be presented with the bill.
This crisis demands fresh thinking. So far all we've seen are reruns and reheats of the same failed policies that have brought us to this sorry pass.
