    On 1st April thousands of people will be faced with benefit cuts which can result in eviction, destitution or even jal. So on 19th January over 50 individuals & organisations agreed to set up the CAMPAIGN FOR BENEFIT JUSTICE CAMPAIGN.
    This is urgent.
    A steering group has been established and CPS is to represented there.
    A statement has been issued. We need to have a presence at this conference in order to build this network.
    So can someonecontact me to arrange representation on the day.

    Can we pop out to go to the bedroom tax protest or will it be too disruptive? I’ve already pledged to go to the protest at 1pm but want to go to this too…
