Merging with Sheffield People’s Assembly

Following our 2014 AGM, SACA has now agreed to merge with Sheffield People’s Assembly, which has very similar aims to SACA, but is part of a national anti-austerity group. We have always wanted to link up with other local anti-austerity groups in the UK, and this seems to be the best way. In order to facilitate this merger, Sheffield (South Yorkshire) People’s Assembly has agreed to changes to its constitution to permit formal affiliation of a wide range of local groups and trade unions that share its broad aims, similar to the structure which existed in SACA.

Axe the Tax Demonstration Saturday 1st June 12.00 Town Hall

Demonstration Saturday 1st June
Axe the Bedroom Tax
Sheffield Benefit Justice campaign have called the next demonstration against the Bedroom Tax outside the Town Hall at 12pm on Saturday 1st June

Axe the Tax!

Congratulations to the Sheffield Benefit Justice Campaign for today’s demonstration against the Bedroom Tax in Sheffield.  This campaign is building up nationally, and this will not be the last demonstration.  Just as important is the organisation of meetings and groups on council estates around Sheffield, which has also been growing over the past month.  Sheffield Anti-Cuts Alliance gives its full support to the Benefit Justic Campaign, and sees this as a vital community campaign against the coalition government’s attacks on welfare, and scapegoating of the least well-off to divert attention from the millionaires who caused the current economic mess.
