What TUSC and Leicester Independent Councillors Against Cuts Stand For

All TUSC Councillors stand up for equality for all, and reject the claim that ‘some cuts’ are necessary to our services. We are completely opposed to the lie that is austerity. We will thus use all the legal powers available to councils to oppose both the cuts and government policies which centrally impose the transfer of public services to private bodies.

We support action against climate change and for a future where sustainability comes before profit – this includes opposing fracking. We refuse to implement the Bedroom Tax now. Instead we believe that Councils should write off all bedroom tax-related arrears, withdraw all court proceedings and eviction orders where the bedroom tax has been a factor, and call on Housing Associations to do the same.

Corporations should no longer be able to dominate society through anti-democratic lobbying. Instead we fight for a democratic socialist society run in the interests of people not millionaires. One major way in which corporate lobbying efforts will be diminished somewhat is by bringing the major companies and banks that dominate the economy into democratic public ownership: in this way production and services can be planned to meet the needs of all and to protect the environment.
