Campaigners and local government workers in Barnet, north west London, have called a protest on Saturday 23 March.
Barnet’s Tory council has voted to hand over the running of council services to private firm Capita for the next 10 to 15 years.
They also want to almost completely eliminate facility time for council workers’ trade unions.
This is a crisis for local democracy, so in reference to the uprisings in the Arab countries the protest is called the “Barnet Spring”.
