    What can we all do ?

    * Have your say in theCouncil’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.
