Protest against cuts - level 2
In London, people protested in response to the new conservative government’s plans for public spending cuts. The protesters were worried that the cuts would hurt the vulnerable, such as the young, the disabled, people with mental illnesses and the elderly. The protesters said that the cuts weren’t fair as everyone else had to suffer for the mistakes of the few people who had money. One protester also said that the new government was not truly as popular as it said it was.
Difficult words: public spending cuts (when the government spends less money on something that helps many people), vulnerable (people who are easily harmed or hurt), suffer (to have problems).
