Hundreds of postcards given to Royal Mail in anti-sell off protest
A TRURO-based anti cuts alliance has strongly opposed the privatisation of Royal Mail claiming it will be an “economic disaster.”
The Cornwall Anti-Cuts Alliance has delivered over 250 post cards, all opposing privatisation plans, to Truro’s Royal Mail base in Newham.
Representatives from the alliance say plans to sell off Royal Mail could cripple the economy.
Howard Newlove from the alliance said: “It does not make economic sense to sell off a public company to the private sector.

“It is a hugely profitable company and should not be handed over so easily. It seems Dutch companies are interested in snapping up surely it makes sense to keep it in the UK.”
The Cornwall Anti-Cuts Alliance was formed in 2010 amid austerity fears.
The group believes that government cuts are not inevitable or necessary.
A public meeting is set for Friday September 27 at 7.30pm in the Hall for Cornwall to discuss issues with the group.
