END AUSTERITY NOW - Take Back Manchester
National week of action 3 - 7 October.
Including: National Demonstration Sunday 4 October
Assemble 12pm: Oxford Road, M14
This government continues to punish the most vulnerable in society, to cut & privatise our services, and to attack our rights. This October, the Conservative Party will be holding their conference in Manchester. Every single day they are there, the anti-austerity movement will be there too.
The People's Assembly is calling a national week of protest from 3 - 7 October with events across Manchester. We will send a clear message that austerity has failed and we demand policies that benefit the majority and not just the few at the top.
Join us for as much of the week as you can; take time off work, book annual leave now, & help us make sure the Tories are met with the opposition they deserve.
Transport is being arranged from across the country. Click here for transport near you: Transport to Manchester
