Devon People’s Assembly Against Austerity holding a rally in Exeter’s Northernhay Gardens

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.

    Hi Gave my email details at this event and again since, but heard nothing from Devon group (I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, so rely on email and telephone). Really want to support the group and also know if local transport is going to the 4 October demo, as I intend to support that. Would be very grateful if anyone reads this, if they could add me to the mailing list for Devon People’s Assembly. Thanks Peter Bailey (peter.bailey1@hotmail.com)
