The Brighton People's Assembly Against Austerity are bringing together people, groups and artists in a festival to fight austerity as part of a weekend of action following the national March for Health, Homes, Jobs and Education – End Austerity Now on the Saturday 16 April.
The 99% festival launches with an eclectic performance arts-style after party on Saturday night with bands, DJs and interactive performances (dance, poets and rappers etc).
The festival continues on Sunday with films, speakers and workshops on different themes to inspire and share learning on campaigns e.g. housing, health, climate change, local cuts and national/international economics. The focus is on, debunking myths, exploring alternative solutions, and not just problems.
