CAMPAIGNERS against cuts being made by the Coalition Government will gather outside Saffron Walden Town Hall this evening to “hound” business secretary Vince Cable.
The Liberal Democrat MP is in town ahead of his appearance on BBC Radio 4 programme Any Questions.
However, campaigners from a number of local unions, student unions and anti-cuts groups will join the Right to Work Campaign group outside the historic town centre venue in a show of protest.
A spokesman for Right to Work, which is organising the protest, said: “Vince Cable is the man who is responsible for the plans to privatise the Royal Mail, responsible for the £9,000 a year tuition fees and a senior figure in the government threatening our national health service.”
Right to Work campaigners – whose slogan is ‘save jobs, stop the cuts and defend public services’ - bid to ‘hound the Con-Dems’ and disrupt ministers whenever possible.
On Tuesday around 60 activists gathered outside the Union Society building in Bridge Street, Cambridge, to hound communities and local government secretary Eric Pickles.
