    Update to ‘Save SBS’ campaign

    Well, you should know by now that Southall Black Sisters may potentially go under if the bastard Tory controlled Ealing Council cut their funding. Here are some things you can do to help:

    1) To his credit, Ealing-Southall MP Virendra Sharma is supporting this campaign and has tabled an Early Day Motion in Parliament to this effect.
    Quickly, drop an email to your MP asking to support it!

    2) Sign the 10 Downing St. petition.

    3) Join the Facebook group to get updates and offer help.

      I think this is important. I asked my MP to support EDM 1122, but I might not have been early enough!

      How do we find out the outcome?

      Sorry to play devil’s advocate, but there has been quite a lot of criticism of SBS from people involved in their line of work. Given the large amount of money they were receiving from Ealing Council, perhaps the best solution would be to cut their funding but not stop it, then divert the cut money to other groups in area.
