Oxfordshire Anti Cuts Alliance was set up to unite trade unions, campaign groups and anti cuts campaigns across Oxfordshire to build the strongest possible resistance to the the policies of austerity that are being forced on people as the solution to recession and the crisis in the global banking system.

From our launch in October 2010 the OACA has helped to mobilise thousands of people across Oxfordshire in opposition to cuts and other austerity measures, including privatisation of the NHS, cuts in funding for education including tuition fee rises,  compulsory work-for-nothing schemes, and attacks on benefits for the unemployed, sick and disabled.  At the same time we have pointed towards solutions - including calling on the government to act against tax evasion and use the £100 billion unpaid tax to be used to fund a welfare state to protect the vulnerable and for the creation of jobs and homes.
