‘POVERTY – WE’RE NOT HAVING IT’ – Public Meeting

6.30pm, Wednesday 13th June 2012
North Edinburgh Arts Centre

The attacks on the NHS, wages, welfare and pensions alongside the lack
of housing and the increase in fuel poverty, and the many other cuts
that are in the pipeline will bring serious consequences to many
families in North Edinburgh and beyond.

We are asking people in North Edinburgh to come to our public meeting on
Wednesday 13th June at the North Edinburgh Arts Centre at 6.30pm to hear
the case against poverty and join the fightback. We are not having it!

Speakers confirmed include representatives from North Edinburgh Womens
Group, North Edinburgh Fights Back, Shelter Scotland and the Poverty
Alliance.

All welcome!
