On Sunday October 3rd the - at times - torrential rain could not dampen the enthusiasm of around 7,000 marchers as they wound their way through Birmingham city centre in protest against Tory/Lib Dem government's planned cuts. As Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary, said speaking from the rally platform, ”If thousands could be mobilised against the cuts in the pouring rain, just think what could be achieved if the TUC were to organise such a demonstration. We could bring hundreds of thousands onto the streets.”
