Nottingham's ethical, all-vegan catering campaign Veggies has been on the road twice to Birmingham in the past few days, to show support for our scapegoated badger friends who are under attack from the Tory government.

Budget protest at County Hall

On Wednesday 13th November, Notts County Unison held a protest at County Hall against the cuts being proposed at Nottinghamshire County Council.

The council reverted to Labour control in May, but this has made little difference to the austerity programme in the county which continues apace.
