Around 150 demonstrators marched through Wood Green on Tuesday night protesting against further council budgets cuts.

Haringey Alliance for Public Services (HAPS) lead a coalition of groups to Haringey Civic Centre in High Road, Wood Green, where the latest round of £21million in cuts were approved in response to government cutbacks.

The rally included an open mic session where people gave heartfelt speeches – and chants of “No Ifs, No Buts – No Public Sector Cuts” rang through the night.
