Attending were Unison, GMB, Unite, PCS, NUJ, UCU, CWU, NUT amongst others
At the end of the demo in Castle Square there was a motley crew of about a dozen far-right English / Welsh Defence League members. Despite the far-rights' attempts to appeal to workers recently, their attempts today to disrupt a workers' anti-cuts march shows their true colours. This shows why we have to fight all attempts to divide workers in the face of the massive cuts to come.

'The three Party leaders in tonight's television debate all agree that whoever gets elected there will be massive cuts in public sector jobs and services. I would urge public sector workers, private sector workers, service users and community campaigners to join us on the May Day march so we can send out a message to these 'out of touch' politicians that if they come for our public services after the election they will have a fight on their hands'!
If they want to now what to expect if they attack our public services then watch the TV reports coming from Greece where millions have taken to the streets to protest against the savage cuts. That's what will happen here if these politicians try and make ordinary people pay the price for the bankers' crisis. If they bring Greece to Britain then we will respond with the same determination as the Greek workers'.
