At the first Conservative Party conference since Theresa May became prime minister, the People's Assembly has called a national demonstration to demand an alternative to the austerity introduced under her predecessor David Cameron. That means investment in public services, in infrastructure, and in decent jobs for all; it means an end to the scapegoating of immigrants which has divided our communities and dangerously stoked racism. We don't believe the Conservatives are willing or able to deliver such change.
