Flash Mob: - Monday 27th February, Victoria Square, 12pm.
Feb 15, 2017 — Hi all,
Thank you to everyone who made it down to the lobby at Victoria Square on Tuesday 14th February. 100's turned out to support #saveoursupport as we said no to cuts to supporting people. Speakers from across the services that these cuts will impact spoke just outside the council offices. We hope the message was heard loud and clear by the people who will make this important decision.
We have one final ask from you all. On Tuesday 28th February, the final decision on the budget being proposed will be made. The council could vote to approve these draconian cuts to important services that support vulnerable people. We can't let that happen and we need your help to send one final message to the council that these cuts will have a devastating impact on our city. Here is what we need you to do.
On Monday 27th February at 12pm we are asking you to join us in Victoria Square. All that is required is that you come along at that time and bring a blanket with you. Then at 12:15pm, take the blanket out, wrap it around you and sit down. The reason for this is simple. The proposed cuts will mean 450 bed spaces will be lost in Birmingham. That means 450 people could be forced to sleep rough in the city. We want to send a clear message that, if these cuts are implemented, this is what we will see in Birmingham. Are we really okay with this? Do we think that this is honestly acceptable?
Join us on Monday 27th February at 12pm and let’s send one final message to the council that these cuts will have a devastating impact on our ability to help vulnerable people in our city.
