Cardiff voters turned out in their thousands last year to reject the coalition of Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru councillors initiating the despicable implementation of cuts demanded by the Westminster government.
Earlier this month the Labour-controlled council announced a package of cuts which many will see as a harsh punishment for those who loyally supported the party in 2012.
The council hopes to slash its 2013/2014 budget by £22 million by cutting 300 council jobs, closing swimming pools and community centres, selling off Flat Holm island, reducing library and leisure centre opening hours, ending respite breaks for parents of disabled children and cutting subsidies to Cardiff buses.
Voters across the city will be asking why a Labour-controlled council is contemplating such shameful cuts.
In the past, had a Labour-run council contemplated a fraction of such cuts, all hell would have broken loose in Welsh Labour.
This is clearly no longer the case, as it appears that both the party and a vast majority of its councillors are prepared to quietly do the dirty work of these Con-Dem crooks for them.
Cardiff Against the Cuts was established by Cardiff trades council and unites trade unionists and community groups with those representing the disabled in a campaign to oppose all cuts introduced by this pernicious government.
The onus now falls upon organisations to build a mass campaign of opposition to all council cuts in the city, and to show councillors that if they are unprepared to defend the communities that elected them, they will be cast aside and replaced by those who will.
