DEVON People’s Assembly Against Austerity, formed in the wake of the recent election, is predicting hundreds of people will turn out for a rally in Exeter’s Northernhay Gardens on Saturday, June 13.
The rally and free festival against the proposed government cuts, is set to start at 1pm.
The organisation is encouraging people in Exeter to unite to face the challenges together and stand in opposition to austerity. There will be speakers giving talks from 1.30pm and will include an official People’s Assembly representative, community activist, Diana Moore, Quaker and activist Ghee Bowman, and student at Exeter University and founder of Exeter Young Greens, Joe Levy.
The assembly aims to develop a strategy for resistance to mobilise millions of people against the Con Dem government. They hope to play a key role in ensuring the government faces a movement of opposition to generate successful co-ordinated action, including strike action.
