‘Peoples Assembly’ – News of events

Support for The People’s Assembly has surged since the ‘End Austerity Now’ demo on 20 June! New local groups are being set up across the country. Check our local groups page for one near you or if you can set one up where you live please get in touch with the office for advise and support.

We’re planning on keeping the momentum going with a National Day of Action on 8 July. George Osborne is announcing his emergency budget, so we’re calling nation wide protests. This is the second budget in just four months & it begs the question what was Osborne hiding in his last? Osborne plans £12 billion in cuts to welfare and a fresh round of austerity measures.

If you’re in London:
We’d like to welcome all Londoners that support the People’s Assembly to a London Wide Meeting – whether you volunteered, stewarded, made placards, or even just came on the 20 June demonstration – to come along to our next London-wide gathering. We’ll be thinking about how to build a huge presence in London, and sharing ideas on how to make our upcoming events as big as possible.

We thank you for your support and if you able, please set up a monthly donation to help us maintain a permanent opposition to austerity.

  1. You don’t ask the question why we have to have these austerity measures do you? No, because most of you are Labour voters and the ones responsible for voting in a Labour government which virtually bankrupted this country. Gordon Brown and Tony Blair are totally responsible for what HAS to happen in this country today. The same as Greece, they must accept that they have over spent, under contributed to the finances of their country and they are now bankrupt.
