Wednesday 8 July / 5.30 p.m. / Station Road (outside the railway station), Cambridge CB1
On Wednesday the chancellor, George Osborne, will give his second budget in four months, to tell us what he didn't want to tell us before the election – above all, how the Conservative government will find an extra £12bn in welfare cuts.
The prime minister, David Cameron, has hinted at major cuts to tax credits. Journalist observers suggest disability and housing benefits are other likely targets, while the household benefit cap introduced by the Conservative-led coalition government may be lowered. Wealthy households meanwhile are expected to be given an inheritance tax break.
The People's Assembly has called a day of action to protest these latest austerity attacks. In Cambridge we're going to meet at the railway station at the end of the afternoon, where we'll be talking to people about the budget and urging them to travel with us to demonstrate at the Tory party conference on Sunday 4 October. Join us from 5.30 p.m., with a photo call at 6!
