Saturday 20 June / 12 midday / Queen Victoria Street (near the Bank of England), London EC4
With the Tories going it alone in government we know exactly what to expect. More destructive cuts to the things ordinary people care about: the NHS, the welfare state, education, and public services.
The People's Assembly has called a major national demonstration for Saturday 20 June. We'll march from the Bank of England to Parliament Square to protest the continuation of destructive austerity policies. (John Rees has well explained five reasons to take part; see also a letter the Cambridge group published recently.) Thanks to the support of local union organizations, the Cambridge People's Assembly will send at least two free coaches to the demonstration!
The coaches will pick up passengers from the Backs on Queens' Road, and from the Park and Ride site on Madingley Road. We'll meet on the Backs at 9.30 a.m. ready for the coaches to leave at 10 a.m., and perhaps ten minutes later they'll stop at the Park and Ride site. After the demonstration they'll leave London at 6 p.m.
These coaches are free, but we'll hold a collection on board with a suggested donation of £5. Please visit our Eventbrite page to book a seat.
We have to thank the Cambridge and District Trades Council, the Cambridgeshire National Union of Teachers association, the Cambridge University Unite the Union branch, and the Cambridge University and College Union branch for their crucial support.
