All signs from the Newfoundland and Labrador government point to the 2016 provincial budget being an austerity budget. In preparation, the Social Justice Co-op is organizing a post-budget public demonstration for Saturday, April 16th. All citizens are invited to attend and those outside the metro St. John’s area are encouraged to organize local events or actions.
Austerity budgets affect us all. Cuts and privatization of public services, education, and healthcare, as well as increases in taxes will only be the beginning. Workers, students, business owners, seniors, and people on fixed incomes – everyone will experience real problems with austerity and the pain it brings if our government continues down this path.
Now is the time for us to organize and mobilize. It is vital for all citizens to come together in solidarity and to fight back against cuts and for tax fairness. Only by working together will we be able to push back against the austerity agenda.
What: Anti-Austerity Demonstration
When: Saturday April 16th, 1pm
Where: Harbourside Park, Water Street, St. John’s
