(en) New Zealand, awsm: Save South Yorkshire Women's Aid

Date Tue, 7 Nov 2017 08:18:06 +0200


Please see the open letter below from Save South Yorkshire Women's Aid: ---- Dear Sister, Brother ---- We send this letter requesting your support for our campaign. ---- If you've not learned of the campaign yet, we've included article link: ---- below. http://www.thestar.co.uk/our-towns-and-cities/sheffield/a-devastating-blow-to-women-and-girls-campaigners-fight-to-save-last-specialist-domestic-violence-service-in-south-yorkshire-1-8723459 ---- Initially, Cllr Chris McGuiness cited the reason for funding withdrawal from the council to South Yorkshire Women's Aid as lack of funds due to Tory spending cuts. ---- Since then we investigated and published proof that there was over £90 million in council reserves. ---- This week Cllr Chris McGuiness DMBC cited this campaign as the reason that the council are not able to fund Women's Aid!

This campaign was only formed because the council withdrew funding and his comments are an attempt to drive a wedge between the supporting public and the brave staff who are speaking out about cuts.

His comments are also an attempt to silence these courageous workers.

These are the only front line workers who have been brave enough to go on record and publicly speak about cuts to Women's Aid centres in the UK.

This is the last Women's Aid in South Yorkshire. It serves communities from Doncaster, Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and the surrounding villages.

The campaign has recieved huge support from constituents as well as Union Branches and Political Party Branches across our region and further afield.

We ask that you reply with your name, trade union and any position held as a show of Solidarity and support.

Yours, in Solidarity, Jen, Amy and the Women's Lives Matter Yorkshire campaigners.
