CSP members and staff joined the Future That Works demonstration organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions’ Northern Ireland Committee as part of UK-wide events. See here for reports of the marches in London and Glasgow.
 
Leading actors and writers supported the Belfast demonstration and rally with songs and speeches taking place in Custom House Square.
 
CSP Northern Ireland policy officer Tom Sullivan said: 'As well as protesting about the austerity measures imposed by the coalition government in Westminster the purpose of the protest in Belfast was to send a strong message to politicians at Stormont that they need to do all that they can to ensure that health and social care services in Northern Ireland do not continue to suffer as a result of these austerity measures.
 
'No service is more important than the health service and local politicians need to ensure that the health budget in particular is protected from these cuts.'
