The cuts being imposed by governments in the name of "austerity" are having a huge impact, disproportionately so on some of the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities & society at large.

To explore how damaging these cuts are locally, Clydebank TUC helped organise the West Dunbartonshire ANTI-AUSTERITY Day in September 2015. Local workers and activists came together & together shed light on the scale of the massive attacks on working class communities, the effects of which are seldom if ever highlighted in most mainstream media. Below are video clips of highlights from throughout the day.
