The implementation of draconian cuts in the North are soon to become a reality with severe attacks on every sector within society. Citizens in the North are expected to lie down and accept job redundancies, poorer resources with less funding, pay cuts, the slashing of benefits and an array of additional crippling changes in the coming weeks, however upcoming protests are doing quite the opposite; rather than shutting up and taking it, people intend to send a very clear message to the Assembly in the North that they are not willing to stand by and allow people to suffer for a mess caused by bankers and politicians . A substantial effort is being made by groups within the education sector to fight back against over £87 million of cuts and next week this will be accelerated by direct action called by the University and College Union (UCU).
