Activist network of workers, students, retired and claimants in and around Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The network was launched out of the bottom up protests of the students, which others were keen to support and now campaigns against cuts.

We meet every fortnight at organise specifically to oppose cuts to services, jobs and communities.

We aim to coordinate with other local campaigns including campaigns to save Libraries; Youth services; Play services; Pools & Leisure centres; City Hall; Sure Start services etc.

Anti Cuts Network - delayed update!

Hi all,

Apologies for the delay in the blog... we've been actively trying to promote the Anti Cuts Network at events since our last post - please see below for updates from May Day. Please check the blog for updates, and future action:
Find us on Facebook too, at

Update: MAY DAY (Saturday, April 30th)

The Anti Cuts Network marched from the Centre for Life to Exhibition Park in Newcastle, to stand in solidarity with international workers, and to campaign against the cuts to public services. As people begin to feel the effects of the cuts, it is even more important to realise the role international workers play, both here, as asylum seekers and immigrants, and around the world.

Marchers demonstrated their anger at the cuts to public services - cuts which we know affect the most vulnerable first, and which attack the living standards of people across the country. Angry members of the public and activists exposed the cuts which are affecting Newcastle - they also showed the importance of fighting back, and the need to organise collectively, within communities. Join us in organising locally and fighting the cuts!

Together we will fight ALL Cuts!
