Protest at the closure of Phoenix Nursery

February 22, 2010

Workers, service users and supporters today joined a protest today in support of the threatened Phoenix Nursery at the University of Brighton.  The protest was held at Mithras House, where the University governors were holding a meeting.  Despite the rain, the protest was lively and well attended, with the entrance completely crammed.

The threatened attacks match attacks currently being aimed at almost all public services, and come as the nursery at the University of Sussex is also at risk.  Nursery workers and activists have vowed to keep up the protests while the threat remains.

    nice one, BBC covered the protest here. note the Unison woman falling into the whole ‘well we accept the need for cuts just cut something else’ line of ‘reasonable’ reasoning, as if budget crunches are a force of nature.
