Campaign to Oppose Tory Cuts - Kicking off with Feb 4th Action Day


Campaign with Labour to protect our services and oppose Tory cuts!

The Tory government is forcing their ideological programme of austerity on this country and on Bristol. They have drastically reduced funding to local government, meaning Bristol City Council must cut more than £92 million in the next 5 years.

These cruel Tory cuts fly in the face of Labour Party values

Our Labour mayor and councillors were elected on a promise to build a fairer and more equal city. Our priority is to tackle inequality and deprivation head on. So Bristol’s Labour-led council is working hard to protect vital services despite Tory cuts. We will do everything we can to prevent Tory austerity hitting ordinary people in Bristol.

Fighting Back: Labour Opposing Tory Cuts

Starting today, we are launching a Bristol-wide campaign. We will challenge the government and oppose Tory cuts. We will get the word out to people across Bristol so they can join us. We will speak up loudly and tell people that the country would be better off with Labour. It’s no accident that Tory cuts will hit Labour-led councils across the country, while Tory heartlands are protected. They are playing politics with our services. It’s time to fight back. #FightToryCuts

Join us, starting with an Action Day on Saturday 4th Feb

On Saturday Feb 4th, we will hold a city-wide action day opposing Tory cuts. Join us at events in the morning and afternoon!

In the morning we will hit the streets across the city to hand out flyers and collect signatures for a petition to Theresa May.

Please join us at a local event on Saturday 

On East Street from 11am - meet outside Boots (details here)

Door-to-door campaigning in Hartcliffe / Withywood - meet outside Withywood Post Office on Four Acres (details here). 


We need you to make this campaign happen - some ways you can get involved now!

We know that many members feel passionately about this and are itching to take action. Here are some ideas for how you can get involved.

  1. Join or organise a local event on the morning of Sat 4th Feb; this could be a street stall, or door knocking in your area. Where can you speak to the most people and how can you get creative and get noticed?
  2. Share the campaign flyer on your social media and email to your friends and networks, and invite them to join our campaign events on the 4th. You can view the flyer and download as PDF at the bottom of this page
  3. Get your personal message out on social media. Make a 30 second film saying why you feel passionately about this issue, and share it on your facebook and twitter. Use the hashtag #FightToryCuts
  4. Brainstorm creative ideas with your friends and share them so we can help make them happen. How do we put pressure on the Tory councillors in your area? What other attention grabbing campaign actions could we take between the 4th & 21st?
  5. Declare your support online with a Twibbon http://twibbon.com/Support/labour-opposing-tory-cuts
