Edinburgh Anti-Cuts Alliance (EACA) has been formed by members of trade unions and community groups in the Edinburgh area. Its purpose is:

- unite all those in Edinburgh opposed to the cuts being imposed by the UK and Scottish Governments and Edinburgh Council
- provide information on why these cuts are neither necessary nor inevitable
-and organise co-ordinated resistance to them.

Our organising meetings are friendly and open to all.
