March against cuts is 'a warning shot' to coalition

The march against public sector cuts has been described as a warning shot by one union.

29 March 2011

Last weekend's march against proposed austerity measures in London has been tipped as a taste of things to come.

Dave Prentis, general secretary of trade union Unison, told the rally in Hyde Park that he wanted policymakers to "feel the fear and anger" of the people who had turned up to protest against the cuts.

In a move that could prompt a need for negotiation strategies, he described the march as a "warning shot" to the coalition and cited the results of a recent YouGov poll, which indicated vast opposition to planned cuts.

"The government is on the wrong track. The public knows it and so do their supporters. They are cutting too far, too fast and the result is lengthening dole queues and stagnant growth," Mr Prentis said.

In a follow-up statement made after the march, Mr Prentis claimed that the event had shown Unison "at its very best" and warned that the fight for public services must continue.
