Speakers Announced for Launch Rally

We are now able to announce some of the speakers etc at our Launch Rally on April 29th:

James Meadway, Senior Economist at the New Economics Foundation. He is an expert on why austerity makes no economic sense and what the alternatives are, and is a really engaging and brilliant speaker.

Anita de Klerk of the People's Flotilla Against Austerity

Simon Harris of Stoke-on-Trent Citizen's Advice Bureau

Also appearing will be Stephen Morrison-Burke, last years Birmingham Poet laureate - he does amazing spoken word performances and will perform a few poems that are relevant to what the PA is about and the impacts of austerity.

Chair: Jason Hill, President of North Staffordshire Trades Union Council.

Other speakers will be announced in the next few days.
