No more austerity - Demand the alternative
called by Peoples Assembly Against Austerity
Sat 21st June
Free transport from Oxford
No more austerity
Living standards continue to drop, forcing millions into poverty, yet the politicians remain addicted to austerity.
The People’s Assembly, trade unions and campaign groups are organising a national demonstration and free festival in London on 21 June.
The alternative is unheard of in the media or in Parliament. So the demonstration is assembling right on the BBC’s doorstep then marching to Parliament. Join us!
Demand the alternative:
Reverse the cuts, re-nationalise our utilities and public services. Private profit is not for health, education and social services
A statutory living wage, abolish zero hour contracts, end the wage freeze
Invest in building social housing, abolish the bedroom tax and place a cap on private rents
A higher tax on the rich and a clamp down on tax avoidance
Invest in creating green jobs
Increases to welfare and pensions should be tied to average earnings or inflation, whichever is highest
Stop scapegoating immigrants and those relying on social security
A publicly owned democratic banking system
End the cost of war in blood and money: No military interventions, no Trident replacement
Hands off our unions: support the right to strike, remove the anti-union laws and promote strong, effective collective bargaining

So here are our top ten tips for any first-time marchers who’re thinking of joining us on the 20th.
