  2. Order publicity
  3. Get your trade union / campaign to support
  4. Spread the word on social media
  5. Sign the #PeoplesPetition

5) Sign the #PeoplesPetition for the alternative
The People's Assembly launched a petition just before budget day. In just 48 hours over 4,000 people signed! We will be running this petition as part of the national demonstration. Keep sharing, ask your friends and workmates to sign, and of course sign it if you haven't already!

6) Urgent financial appeal - help us raise £30,000 for the demonstration
We've estimated that the cost of putting on this demonstration is going to come to at least £30,000. See our budget below. (this is separate from local groups transport and publicity). 

We're committed to making sure the demonstration happens - but this means we urgently need to raise these funds. What we can achieve with the demonstration depends entirely on how much money we raise. 

Please consider making a donation, and if possible setting up a regular monthly donation so we can properly sustain a permanent campaign against austerity.

    I am so impressed that this movement is underway and fed up with the poorest always having to pay so others can retain positions of unimaginable wealth and power. I would love to perform at the festival, my music is available on sammymanzaroli.band camp.com

    We need an online database of transport laid on by trade unions and others to get to the demo from various parts of the country.
