March 26 and the Cornish anti cuts movement

Anybody interested in the anti-cuts movement in Cornwall and the protection of public services from the Thatcherite axe. Would do well to read the blogs of:

March the Fury and his unique perspective on the days events in London on March 26th and particularly insightful his view from Trafalgar Square.

Make a Left Turn also Keith Shilson's blog about a group from Cornwall who also attended the March 26 rally.

Blogs like these are vital for those of us who couldn't make it all the way to London (300 miles or so, either way) to take part but were there in spirit. It goes to show the strong feeling of people here in Cornwall against the cuts agenda and the real and present worries not only of peoples jobs and the economy but of services that many people rely upon. I have great admiration for those who took the long coach journey to London, who speak for many of us and were there representing themselves and the growing number concerned about the Thatcherite cuts agenda, and the damage it will do to the economy and society generally.
