People in Thanet worried about job cuts are being given a "golden opportunity" to make their feelings heard at the Conservative Party Conference on Sunday October 3rd.

A special bus has been arranged to take protestors from Thanet to the conference which is being held in Birmingham
The bus has been organised by the East Kent Right To Work campaign group which is calling on all people opposed to the government spending cuts to demonstrate at the conference.

The campaign group, supported by trade union bodies and student and pensioner organisations, aims to unite those in and out or work to build "Greek style resistance" to the spending cuts.

Campaign group member Keith Woods said: "Thanet will be hit by the cuts much more than any other parts of Britain, because it is so dependent on public sector employment.

"And rises in VAT will hit the poorest most -- and Thanet is a very poor area.

"It's vital that people here go to the Tories to make clear how angry we feel about this. This is a golden opportunity to do this."

The protest bus will pick up from Margate Cecil Square at 7.30am, Whitstable Library at 8am and Canterbury West Station 8.30am. The price of the trip will be £20 for people on a wage and £10 for the unwaged and students.
