  1. Hi:

    I was wondering if Bromley against cuts know about this event?

    October 13th Global Noise?

    With the success of the Canadian groups. It would be something to consider.

    Yours Respectfully.

    Almost one year after their first ''global day of action'' (15O), Occupy movement and indignants from all over the world are calling for a new protest on October 13th, 2012. The event is called #13O or #globalNOISE.

  2. Medical expenses are increase in some days. Like Constance charges, medicines and other, common person cannot beat this. So Govt. must control it.
