Disabled transport users lobby tomorrow against Tube job cuts

I told you that service users should support the Tube workers' fight against job losses! I've just received an email from some disability rights activists, planning to protest at City Hall tomorrow, when the GLA is due (again) to discuss the planned 800 job cuts on London Underground.
Tomorrow – that is Wednesday 8th September at 9am, join us and other Disability right activists outside City Hall to show our opposition to these dangerous cuts and meet Assembly Members as they attend a GLA Assembly meeting to discuss them.

We will be calling on Boris Johnson and London Assembly Members to oppose the cuts to station staff and support a tube network which is safe and accessible for everyone, disabled and non-disabled.

· Wear red, if you can

· We will provide banners and placards, though feel free to create and bring your own

· Come angry!

Directions: Meet in front of City Hall, The Queens Walk, London SE1 2AA
