Nottingham City Council are planning to cut tens of millions from
their spending in the year from April 2011 with a devastating effect
on services and jobs. They will meet to set this budget on Monday
March 7th. Notts Save Our Services (SOS) are calling on them not to
adopt their cuts budget.

We urge people in Nottingham (and beyond) to get involved in this
campaign if you can. We're organising 2 protests in the Market Square,
petitioning against the cuts and encouraging people to call their
councillor.
