Public Services Protest
3:38pm 5th November 2013
Remember, remember the 5th of November, bonfire protest on cuts.
Cornish campaigners are angry over public services being sold to private companies.
They dropped cards to represent deals like the selling-off of Royal Mail into a mock fire in Truro on Tuesday afternoon.
Stuart Cullimore from Cornwall Anti-Cuts Alliance says: "We're trying to show people what they've lost, what's been taken away from them and has been sold and now you have no control over it. We were sold it on the basis that it would be cheaper and it would be better; it is now neither.
"This is to illustrate what I would say, in my opinion, is the theft of public services from ordinary people. When I was younger, most public services were indeed that; they were in public ownership and the purpose of them was to provide a service for people - not to gain profit."
