END AUSTERITY NOW - demonstrate June 20
Many will be shocked at the prospect of another 5 years of cuts, attacks on the workers and the poor, and an escalation of racism to divert anger away from the government. We can't afford to sit back and wait for another general election - Cameron and co have made it clear they intend to go on the rampage in the next 100 days. July will set a budget with £12 billion of cuts. We need to build resistance now.
The People's Assembly is organising a major national demonstration to tell the new government:
Assemble: 12pm, Saturday 20 June
Bank of England (Queen Victoria Street)
London (Tube: Bank)
With the Tories going it alone in government we know exactly what to expect. More nasty, destructive cuts to the things ordinary people care about- the NHS, the welfare state, education and public services.
We'll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the very people who created the crisis in the first place, the banks and their friends in Westminster. We demand that the bankers and elite should pay for the crisis and not the vast majority who had nothing to do with it.
Now is the time to get organizing, to mobilize our communities, to prepare transport and spread the word. We need to do all that we can to make this demonstration bigger and bolder than ever we have done before.
Transport from Oxford is being arranged, details to follow.
This is a fantastic opportunity to unite the left in coordinating efforts for the biggest possible Oxfordshire wide mobilisation for what will be a massive show of anti-austerity unity in the face of Tory attacks.
Already union branches are sending delegates representing thousands of workers in Oxfordshire, and students. Support is also anticipated from a range of social justice campaigns.
Please talk to your union branch, friends and campaign groups about coming along to the meeting to help build the biggest turn out possible from across Oxfordshire.
