Drum sticks

Drum sticksOn 19 February, the streets of Lewisham will resound to the noise of angry residents with saucepans and wooden spoons at 12 noon showing their disgust at the cuts announced by Mayor of Lewisham, Steve Bullock which target children and the poorest rather than making sure David Cameron’s cuts are rejected.

Various campaigning groups have come together with Lewisham People Before Profit and Lewisham Anti-Cuts Alliance to organise a borough-wide protest outside the threatened libraries, children’s centres and the town hall.

There will also be protests outside banks, who have continued to pay huge bonuses to their bosses while failing to lend money to small businesses who could help regenerate the area.

People will gather from 11am-12pm, singing, chanting, giving out leaflets to passers-by and then at 12 noon protesters plan to bang their saucepans with wooden spoons or saucepan lids to make a cacophony of noise.
