The Labour Group has successfully had the decision to force volunteer libraries on Doncaster called in to the Overview and Scrutiny committee on November 10th. Anyone able to be there should make every effort, at the Mansion House, by 9am. Mayor Davies’s agenda to smash up our library service is fast approaching, so we need to make the most of any opportunity to oppose his plan. This, and any other protest planned, can be a build up to the Festival of Resistance on 30th November where Doncaster’s Libraries need to be at the centre of the call to Occupy Doncaster
PUBLIC MEETING – DANUM HOTEL, 27 OCTOBER, 7PM, Speakers to be announced
The TUC conference ended with a call to action against government plans to cut pensions and increase the retirement age. The leaders of the main public sector trade unions pledged to organise co-ordinated strike action on 30th November.
Everyone who hates what the government is doing to our society should help turn the 30th into a day of mass protest against all cuts. Lets make it a day on which we show the Tories and Liberal coalition that we reject wholeheartedly the idea that working class people should pay for the financial crisis through cuts in services and our standard of living.
DONCASTER COALITION OF RESISTANCE has organised a meeting on 27th October where we can come together and begin to plan events for the day. Come along to hear community and trade union activists speak about how the cuts are destroying the fabric of our society and the need to maximise the resistance before its too late.

The senseless war in Afghanistan costs British tax payers £5 Billion per year. The unnecessary deaths of many thousands of Afghan people and the almost daily news of further British soldiers being killed needs to be stopped. The Con-Dems say there is no alternative to the biggest cuts to our services in living memory yet they still find the money to continue this war.
The Stop the War group in Doncaster has organised a meeting on Tues 6 September, 7.00pm at the Danum Hotel where Joe Glenton, the soldier who was jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan will be speaking, as well as other speakers from War ON Want and StW.
This is part of the lead up to the ANTIWAR MASS ASSEMBLY in London on October 8th which will mark the 10 year anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan.
