A team are currently working to bring this initiative to a successful conclusion.
I am circulating this event to each of our GSRMA Branches. I wish to take this opportunity to earnestly request each and every one of you in GSRMA to support, and attend the protest.
This is an excellent platform for solidarity with our fellow retirees, and an opportunity through a good attendance to leave Government in no doubt that that enough swingeing cuts have been borne by our members .
Let’s make the most of our protest opportunity in a united front.
The message from us is : Enough is Enough. Time for redress!.
