'The Northern Public Services Alliance is holding a rally at Newcastle Civic Centre at 5.00pm on Wednesday 20 October, just after the Comprehensive Spending Review is announced in Parliament.
Public spending cuts are not the way to tackle the deficit, says the alliance leaflet backed by UNISON and 15 other unions with the Northern TUC.'

Later the same day, Tyne and Wear Coalition of Resistance (which will be actively supporting the earlier rally) has an organising meeting. Open to all supporters, the meeting is designed to plan the next campaigning steps in the light of cuts announced by George Osborne. The meeting is at 7pm at Gateshead Civic Centre. See Facebook Event
A key focus of the meeting will be organising and building the public meeting set for 3 November, as well as linking with and supporting other local networks and campaigns.
Next Wednesday marches and rallies are taking place in London and around the country - see HERE for more on the London protests.
