On July 13, 1983 a group calling itself Women Against the Budget was formed. It was a broad-based umbrella organization of women who became a force in the Solidarity Coalition.
THE MESSAGE OF THIS BUDGET IS CLEAR. THE GOVERNMENT IS TELLING US THAT OUR HARD-WON DEMOCRATIC, HUMAN AND ECONOMIC RIGHTS DON’T COUNT. WE DISAGREE! WE INTEND TO FIGHT BACK THROUGH EDUCATION AND ACTION. WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON BY BRINGING THE INFORMATION IN THIS LEAFLET TO YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS, YOUR GROUP OR YOUR WORKPLACE. IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION OR WISH TO JOIN US, WE ARE:
WOMEN AGAINST THE BUDGET

Thursday, July 28.

CUT BACKS WON’T STOP US! FIGHT BACK!
