The People's Assembly national demonstration etc

The People's Assembly national demonstration is shaping up to be a huge event. Transportis being organised from across the country and thousands of people have been out on the streets leafleting, organising people to come from their union branches, campaign groups and community organisations.

No More Austerity | Demand the Alternative: Saturday 21 June
Assemble 1pm, BBC HQ, Portland Place
London W1 1AA

In the next few weeks, we are asking all our supporters to do as much as they can to help make sure the demonstration is as big as possible.

People are feeling the squeeze more than ever as living standards continue to drop. And all Cameron and his millionaire cabinet tell us is things are getting better - but the so called economic recovery demonstrates it's only getting better for those at the top.

And it's an outrage that the far right UKIP has had so much press coverage recently. This demonstration is a way of cutting through this; uniting, and not dividing, communities to fight for a better future.

Demonstration route:

We are pleased to announce that we have negotiated a fantastic route for the march. We'll be assembling right on the BBC's doorstep, then marching through central London, and ending with a free festival outside Parliament.

Performers and speakers include: Russell Brand, Christine Blower, Owen Jones, Kate Smurthwaite, Sam Fairbairn, Sean Taylor, Len McCluskey, Stephen Morrison-Burke, Francesca Martinez, Jeremy Corbyn MP. More TBA.


Demonstration blocs:

The march will bring together all campaigns and organisations who are fighting austerity. Some organisations will be forming themed blocs on the demonstration to represent their campaigns.

Themes include:
Hands off our NHS, Stand up for Education, Welfare not Warfare, Housing, Artists Against Austerity, Environment, Immigrants Welcome Here, Europe Against Austerity, StudentAssembly. Trade Unions will also be organising their own blocs, more info to follow.

If you'd like more information or would like to organise a bloc / theme please email
