Newport Passport Office March and Rally

We marched from The Westgate Hotel to the art gallery and library where we gathered for a rally and to listen to some speakers. In front of us was a small child who was holding a banner. On one side it said save my mum’s job. On the other, save my dad’s job.

This is the kind of devastation these cuts will cause to families all across the public sector, and all for an ideology of a smaller state. Interestingly though, the Newport Passport Office is actually profitable so there is absolutely no excuse for closing it. This is not just an attack on the public sector, but leaving Wales without a pasport office will make it the only country in Europe without a passport office. This is an attack on Wales and our public services.
