Rally date: 13 March, 18.00-19.30. Location: The Emmanuel Centre, Westminster
Ordinary families are paying the price for an economic slump they did nothing to cause.
With prices rising and wages held back, living standards are under attack. Public services are being slashed across the country, as jobs are cut. Millions – both employed and unemployed – will see benefits fail to keep up with prices.
Yet this April the 50p tax for the richest will be cut, and ministers press on with austerity policies that hold back growth and threaten a triple dip recession.
It’s time to change course and build a future that works – starting with the budget due on March 20.
The TUC will be putting the pressure on Chancellor George Osborne to change course, with a public rally in Westminster on the evening of 13 March, from 6pm.
Please register for a place at the Rally, or if you can’t make it to London, please pledge to watch the Rally online. We’ll be streaming it live and planning a series of online actions that people can take to make a huge noise about the budget that the Chancellor won’t be able to ignore.
