More than 120 protesters took to the streets of Norwich this afternoon to show their opposition to public service cuts.
Trade unionists and campaigners were joined by members of the public for speeches in Chapelfield Gardens, before a march through the city centre.
The lunchtime rally, organised by the newly-formed Norfolk People's Assembly, was preceded by a morning of information and discussion workshops in the Forum.
The crowds, bearing placards with slogans including 'Hands off our NHS' and 'We save people, not bankers', heard from speakers protesting at the government's treatment of the NHS, mental health services, education and emergency services.
Jan Ainsley of pressure group Keep Our NHS Public, Mark Harrison of the charity Equal Lives and county councillor Emma Corlett of Unison called for people to make their voices heard in opposition to government cuts.
