FINLAND: Thousands Demonstrate Against the Government’s Planned Cuts to Low Income and Disabled Services

Something tells me that things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better. The new (very rich) government has made cuts to childcare, unemployment assistance services, low income housing, Deaf services, disability services…. all of the things that non-rich people rely on just to survive.

Must be great to be a millionaire before winning an election.  Then you can make sure none of your rich friends are targetted in cutbacks.  The very first thing they did was slash funding to Deaf services, quickly followed by childcare, education, rental assistance for low income families.  Proud moment for Finland… not.
