Hundreds march in Leeds against Tory bedroom tax . . .


. . . and any Labour Councils who execute it.

Hundreds of people marched through Leeds on Saturday morning, April 5, 2014, protesting about the Tory bedroom tax and other austerity cuts. There was a samba marching band, a ukelele orchestra, and some brilliant speeches. The video includes testimony from people working with addicts and alcoholics, showing how the bedroom tax was forcing young addicts into unsuitable accommodation, often in accommodation shared with drug users and drunks. Many marchers accepted leaflets from NOTA – “none of the above” and important discussions with The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) who will be standing 440 anti-cuts candidates in May. NOTA is also having discussions with the Green Party, and will be supporting an anti-cuts Respect candidate in Bradford.
