Campaigners took to the streets to protest about the city council's proposed £2.2 million cut to its homelessness strategy budget.
Members of Streetlife Action Group asked shoppers in the city centre to sign their petition calling for a halt to the plans.
We have to either significantly increase the tax burden on working people or deal with the real problem and cut unnecessary spending (non-jobs, middle management, vanity projects etc) to fit our national wealth.

Every Labour councillor should be ashamed of this decision. I see the council's capital programme remains unscathed (and unaffordable).
No doubt cutting support for the homeless will help pay some of the Jubilee Gardens costs.
Well done to Streetlife Action Group. Every concerned citizen should oppose these swingeing cuts that target those who most need our help.
Labour councillors dare not speak out against the boss. Complain and you are out.
