Final Budget Showdown! January 17th @ City Hall

On January 17th-19th, City Council will vote on the 2012 budget. Ford and his buddies want to cut nearly $90 million in services, even though the city has a surplus of at least $140 million. They plan to slash services, hike fares and user fees, and lockout or layoff workers when there is actually enough money to improve life in this city. AIDS organizations, funded by the Community Partnership and Investment Program, are also under attack. These are organizations which help prevent new infections and support those living with HIV/AIDS and Hep C.

Toronto Stop the Cuts has been organizing in neighbourhoods across the city to build powerful resistance against Ford and his cuts. AIDS ACTION NOW! is a endorsing organization of Toronto Stop the Cuts. On January 17th, we are all coming together for a Final Budget Showdown – a rally and actions to oppose the cuts and demand an expansion of city services for all! We encourage AIDS ACTION NOW! members to come out and make their voices heard in solidarity against these cuts.

Join us – together we can Stop the Cuts!
