What can we all do ?

* Have your say in the Council’s so-called ‘consultations’ as it’s important that people speak out AGAINST ALL CUTS at every opportunity

* Sign the petition against cuts to day centres and closure of residential homes  – online at: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-our-autism-services-in-haringey
or on street stalls where you will see around the borough in coming weeks

* Sign the petitions against closure of youth services at:  www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-bruce-grove-youth-centre-haringey-youth. (twitter at @SaveHaringeyYS) and cuts at Marcus Garvey Library at https://www.change.org/p/tell-haringey-council-to-save-tottenham-s-marcus-garvey-library

* Get involved in the many local campaigns, including defending Council housing estates from ‘redevelopment’, defending Marcus Garvey Library from cuts, supporting community-run community centres, and to end the charging of Haringey’s poorest residents for Council Tax shortfalls.  Or set up your own to defend the services and facilities you care about. Support and publicise their petitions and protests.

* Write to your councillors, MPs, and the local press. Get your residents’ group, pensioners’ group, carers’ group, trade union to do so too. Also demand Parliamentary candidates for the 2015 election say where they stand and support the campaigns to defend all services.

Haringey Council has announced that it intends to appoint the former Chief Executive of Barnet 'easyCouncil' on a salary of £189,440 per annum. Nick Walkley spearheaded a mass privatisation and cuts programme in Barnet and jumped ship before its completion. We do not want Barnet’s costly experiment repeated here.

His appointment is due to be either approved or rejected at a council Cabinet meeting on 16 October.

Haringey Alliance for Public Services is calling on them to reject the appointment and reverse their current policies which threaten our local public services. They have called a protest at the council cabinet meeting on Tuesday 16 October, 5.45pm at Haringey Civic Centre, Wood Green, N22.

For anyone who lives or works in Haringey, please also sign this petition (or see link below) to let councillors know that we oppose Walkley's appointment and any plans for mass outsourcing of services in our borough.
