Residents from South Belfast campaigning against the closure of Belfast City Hospital A&E will be protesting outside Parliament Buildings Stormont on the first day the Assembly meets to present the Minister for Health with thousands of petitions.

The Stop the Cuts Campaign is calling on all groups, communities and workers affected by cuts to join them on 12th September to send a message to the Assembly Executive that we do not support cut to jobs and services.

The cuts to the health service are threatening the health and lives of ordinary people. Young people are seeing their education being decimated. NIPSA has warned hundreds of workers will lose their jobs in education if the Assembly Executive implements the cuts.

We need to build a mass movement against these cuts - cuts which are wrecking the economy and lenghtening the dole queues.

Please support the protest at Stormont on 12th September
