Anti cuts protest in Barnstaple this Friday

North Devon MP calling on hundreds to join him for last chance to have their voices heard on Devon County Council cuts plans.
A ‘last chance’ protest against Devon County Council cuts will take place in Barnstaple on Friday.
The protest begins at 4.30pm on The Starnd and has been organised by Nick Harvey MP and the North Devon Liberal Democrats.
“This protest is the last chance for service users of Devon’s residential care homes, day centres and youth centres to make their voices heard before their facilities are closed, and an opportunity for library users to continue their campaign against cuts,” said Mr Harvey.
“We all recognise that Devon County Council faces financial challenges, but the way they have gone about these closures is just shocking - refusing to let members of the public speak, trying to get away with a sham scrutiny process at County Hall and devolving democratic decisions to be made by just one person.
“I am inviting everyone in North Devon who is concerned about these savage cuts to come and demonstrate their opposition with one voice.”
