Sunday 2 October / 11.30 a.m. / Victoria Square, Birmingham B1
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.
The Cambridge People's Assembly will provide cheap, wheelchair-accessible coach transport to and from Birmingham for the demonstration. Our coach will pick up passengers from the Backs on Queens' Road, and from the Unite the Union office near the Park and Ride site on Madingley Road. We'll meet from 8 a.m. ready for the coach to leave Cambridge at 8.30, and leave Birmingham at 5 p.m.
Seats cost £12 (waged) or £6 (unwaged), or are free for children under 14. (If you can't afford these prices, we apologize: let us know and we'll try to work something out.) Please visit our Eventbrite page to book.
